Trillium Asset Management, Green Century Capital Management, and 350.org have released a new guide for investors on fossil fuel free investing titled Make a Clean Break: Your Guide to Fossil Fuel Free Investing. The new guide aims to provide investors with insights and tools to eliminate fossil fuel companies from their portfolios and reinvest in clean, sustainable, and solutions-oriented investments.
“As we continue to see critical shifts in both the political and regulatory landscape, we believe it is more important than ever for investors to support sustainable economic growth through fossil fuel divestment and proactively invest in companies that provide solutions to growing global sustainability challenges,” said Matt Patsky, CEO of Trillium Asset Management. “Taking action on climate change through divestment has never been more important—or easier to implement. Every individual, family, and institution should take the time to review the options available and steps to take.”
“We can’t stand-by waiting for our governments to do the right thing. Divesting sends one clear message globally: it is time to end the age of fossil fuels because that’s what it really means to solve the climate crisis,” Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org added.
