Sustainability Analyst

Join the Green Century Team

Green Century Capital Management (Green Century) is the administrator of the Green Century Funds, the first family of fossil fuel free, responsible, and diversified mutual funds in the U.S.

Our firm is growing and we are seeking talented and motivated individuals to join our dynamic team.

For more than 25 years, Green Century has been the standard bearer of responsible investing, and no other fund can match our environmental and public health impact.

Green Century uses a unique three-pronged approach to deliver impact and competitive returns.

Green Century:

  1. Invests in sustainable companies: Instead of investing in the most environmentally-reckless companies in the world, the Green Century Funds invest in environmental leaders and innovators and companies leading their industries in their environmental, social and governance performance ratings.
  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.
  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 we earn managing the Green Century Funds can be used to support their work.
