Fossil Free Funds is a search platform built to help people find out if their money, in the form of individual investments or an employer-offered retirement plan, is being used to extract and consume fossil fuels.
Owning investments in coal companies, oil/gas producers, and coal-fired utilities isn’t just a moral question. Fossil fuel investments carry real financial risks. When emissions are constrained, fossil fuel companies will have their carbon assets stranded. The implication is that they’re massively overvalued, and markets are realizing that investing in fossil fuels is a risky bet.
Fossil Free Funds empowers investors to know exactly what they own, to see if their savings are invested in dirty energy sources, and to find investment options that support a cleaner, greener future.
