Open Note to Green Century Investors

No guns

Like so many of you, we are deeply saddened by the latest tragic school shooting in Florida. We also have been inspired by the organized, courageous, and strong responses from students, parents and others in Florida and around the country.

Many investors with whom we have spoken have been concerned that they may be invested in firearms. We want to affirm that Green Century does not invest in gun manufacturers or distributors.

Green Century believes that certain industries, including firearms, as well as nuclear and military weapons, impose onerous costs on society. The “screening” out of these companies has been in place for more than 20 years and is written into our prospectus.

As socially responsible investors, we recognize that our investments can have both positive and negative impacts on the world, and we seek to ensure that our investments reflect our values.

You can always find more information about our investment strategy by visiting the ‘Our Funds‘ page, reading our prospectus,or speaking with one of the Green Century staff at 1-800-93-GREEN.

You should carefully consider the Funds’ investment objectives, risks, charges and expenses before investing.

Stocks will fluctuate in response to factors that may affect a single company, industry, sector, country, region or the market as a whole and may perform worse than the market. Foreign securities are subject to additional risks such as currency fluctuations, regional economic or political conditions, differences in accounting methods, and other unique risks compared to investing in securities of U.S. issuers. Bonds are subject to risks including interest rate, credit, and inflation. The Funds’ environmental criteria limit the investments available to the Funds compared to mutual funds that do not use environmental criteria; as a result, performance may be affected.
