The Green Century Funds avoid companies harmful to human or social ecology.
The Green Century Funds are entirely fossil fuel free. The Funds do not invest in corporations that explore for, extract, process, refine, and transmit coal, oil, or gas; burn fossil fuels to make electricity; or possess carbon reserves.
The Green Century Funds also do not invest in producers of nuclear weapons or nuclear energy, armaments, guns or civilian weapons, or tobacco.
Instead, the Green Century Funds invest in the most environmentally responsible companies in their respective industries.
The Funds are the first family of fossil fuel free, responsible, and diversified mutual funds in the U.S.
Green Century° uses a unique three-pronged approach to deliver impact while seeking competitive returns in an unparalleled manner.
1. Invests in sustainable companies: The Green Century Funds invest in environmental leaders and innovators that are helping transition the global economy to clean and renewable energy sources, combat climate change, and reduce pollution.
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: Our team of shareholder advocates directly presses several dozen companies every year to improve their corporate sustainability practices. Green Century has successfully pushed companies to source more renewable energy, improve their animal welfare policies, protect pollinators, end deforestation in their supply chains, and more.
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.
