Green Investing

Have you ever thought about investing in "green companies" and supporting eco-friendly businesses? Green investing, which falls within the framework of socially responsible investing (SRI), can be traced back to the 1960s when investors became concerned with civil rights, the environment and militarism. It involves seeking out and investing in companies that conserve natural resources, are involved in clean air and water projects, or some other kind of environmentally-friendly business. In Canada the Responsible Investment Association is a non-profit organization that provides public awareness of responsible investment (RI) and believes that RI is a valuable investment tool to enhance returns, reduce risk and catalyze positive social change.

According to Investopedia there are specific types of green investments that individuals can make. Some investors are interested only in more pure play options like companies that do research into or make products like renewable fuels, and energy-saving technology. These types of investments can be much more risky – as the markets are more volatile with new technologies. Still, other investors put money behind companies that simply have good business practices when it comes to the way they use natural resources and manage waste, but draw their revenue from multiple sources.
