Green Investment

Any investment that involves taking a position in securities exclusively in environmentally-friendly companies. Different green investments involve different methodologies for determining what constitutes an environmentally-friendly company. Some may avoid certain industries, such as oil and gas, entirely, while others may look at the environmental records of particular companies. Many investment companies offer green funds. Green investing is a form of socially conscious investing.
