About Us: Overview
Green Century Capital Management (Green Century) is the administrator of the Green Century Funds, a family of environmentally responsible mutual funds.
Many mainstream Wall Street investment firms solely focus on a profitable bottom line for themselves. But independent, triple bottom line firms like Green Century focus on what our investors care about: building a sustainable economy while seeking competitive financial returns.
Green Century provides a new option for investors, empowering you to use the power of your investment dollars to encourage environmentally responsible corporate behavior. Green Century recognizes that business as usual will not create the green future we seek.
Green Mutual Funds
Founded by a partnership of non-profit environmental advocacy organizations, Green Century provides investors who care about a clean, healthy planet the opportunity to use the clout of their investment dollars to encourage environmentally responsible corporate behavior. At Green Century, “green investing” means investing in a diverse array of companies that are helping to build a cleaner, greener future for us all – from small, innovative wind power producers to large, established firms using cleaner technologies to run their businesses and bring their products to market.
As a shareholder in the Green Century Funds, you can invest in a broad mix of companies selected for environmental, social, and financial reasons. Without necessarily sacrificing financial performance, you can be confident that your investment will contribute to a more sustainable economy and help foster a better world for us all.
At Green Century, we also believe green investing is about more than just avoiding certain companies. Environmentally-destructive practices and policies are not just bad for the planet – they can also create significant risks and disadvantages for companies. Therefore, we are committed to using the ownership stake in the companies held by the Green Century Funds to advocate for improved environmental performance and more sustainable business practices. Since our founding, Green Century has engaged over one hundred companies through shareholder advocacy, helping them to improve their environmental performance, decrease risk, and capture opportunities. Learn more about our advocacy successes.
Our engagement with companies, including with some that do not meet the environmental screens of our Funds and are not in either of the Funds’ portfolios, helps to foster a sustainable economy in which good businesses can succeed. As we work with companies to improve their environmental performance, we also increase the universe of companies in which the Green Century Funds might invest.
