Resources for Responsible Investing
At the same time, we know there are a lot of personal choices to be made when it comes to how you save your money. It might seem hard to find out if a bank is heavily invested in fossil fuels, but there are resources out there to help you find out about greener options.
First, there’s Green America’s Community Investing Guide. It’s a guide to the alternatives to big banks, like local credit unions.
Next, there’s Fossil Free Funds. It’s a tool that can tell you if your retirement account or mutual fund is invested in fossil fuels. It’s created by the non-profit As You Sow, and it can be personalized to help you find investment funds that suit your definition of sustainability.
