Do your financial investments align with your values? If you are striving to wean off of fossil fuels in your daily life, shouldn’t you consider weaning your investments off of them too?
Read up on sustainably focused investing and take action:
- The search platform Fossil Free Funds offers a ‘Fossil Free Action Tool Kit.’ The website also identifies funds that invest in the fossil fuel industry and funds that invest in clean energy.
- 350.org, Trillium Investments, and Green Century have collaborated on a guide to removing fossil fuels from your portfolio.
- As You Sow is a non-profit organization that promotes environmental and social corporate responsibility. It offers free online tools to identify companies that are embedded in your mutual funds and which funds are aligned with your values.
