Fossil fuel companies — from “supermajors” like ExxonMobil to small oil-field service companies — have been the most volatile and weakest performing sector in the U.S. for the last decade. That investment risk materialized years before the COVID-19 economic slowdown and the oil price collapse. With a wave of debt coming due through 2024, any prolonged period of low demand or lack of credit could push many fossil fuel companies into bankruptcy, especially the small ones that may be gobbled up in a wave of acquisitions.
There is a way to avoid this risk. Fossil free investing is as much about minimizing risk in your portfolio as it is about not investing in the companies creating and profiting from climate destruction. Choosing fossil free funds for retirement savings may offer protection from energy sector volatility, and those freed-up dollars can be reinvested in sustainable clean energy and other sectors important to the transition to a low-carbon economy.
