Invest with Green Century

Green Century° is proud to be the home of the first family of fossil fuel free, responsible, and diversified mutual funds in the U.S.

Our unique three-pronged approach to environmentally responsible investing allows us to deliver impact while seeking competitive returns in a way no other mutual fund can match.

Green Century:

1. Avoids environmentally irresponsible industries: All of the Green Century Funds avoid fossil fuel companies with fossil fuel reserves, tobacco products and nuclear weapon and instead invest in companies with high environmental, social and governance ratings.

A sustainable investment strategy which incorporates environmental, social and governance criteria may result in lower or higher returns than an investment strategy that does not include such criteria.

2. Leads an effective shareholder advocacy program: We worked with more than 120 companies in 2021 to source more clean energy, reduce the use of plastics and protect endangered species.

3. Supports environmental and public health nonprofit organizations: Green Century is the only mutual fund company in the U.S. wholly owned by environmental and public health nonprofit organizations, and 100% of the profits earned managing the Green Century Funds can be used to support their work.
