New Guide Helps Investors ‘Make a Clean Break’ from Fossil Fuels
Monday, April 24, 2017
Green Century Capital Management, in collaboration with Trillium Asset Management and 350.org, has released a new fossil fuel-free investing guide for environmentally and socially conscious investors. Make a Clean Break: Your Guide to Fossil Fuel Free Investing — an update to previous versions released in 2014 and 2013 — provides improved insights and analysis about the potential financial advantages of eliminating fossil fuel corporations from investment portfolios and reinvesting in clean, sustainable and solutions-oriented investments that are advancing the transition toward a zero-carbon economy.
“Given the current political and regulatory environment, we are seeing more investors looking for ways get off the sidelines and use their investments to help make a positive impact,” said Green Capital president Leslie Samuelrich.
“Taking action on climate change through divestment has never been more important — or easier to implement,” added Matt Patsky, CEO and Portfolio Manager at Trillium Asset Management. “Every individual, family and institution should take the time to review the options available and steps to take. We believe this guide offers a concrete action plan to set the wheels in motion.”
Whether investors invest on their own, through an employee-sponsored 401k, or a financial intermediary such as a Financial Advisor, the guide offers specific steps individuals can take to start investing fossil fuel-free. I
