You’re concerned about climate change. But chances are, you don’t know what’s really in your investment portfolio and whether your investments are helping or hurting the cause.

A new ranking is working to help change that.

As You Sow, a nonprofit foundation, has teamed up with Corporate Knights, a research and financial information products company, to rank 200 companies by how well they are making clean energy a priority.

That includes how much in revenue they receive through clean energy. It also screens out companies based on other criteria, such as whether they are involved with non-green utilities, tropical deforestation, child labor or weapons.
