DeCarbonizing the Economy
In 2012, Earth Equity and its CEO, Peter Krull, became a pioneer in the investment industry by offering the Green Sage Sustainability Portfolio. It was one of the first portfolios of its kind, giving clients the opportunity to invest in a sustainable new economy.
In 2021, Pete recognized the opportunity to create a portfolio that helps clients invest in companies specifically working to decarbonize the economy. This portfolio would be a less diversified, more focused version of the Green Sage Sustainability Portfolio, but using a similar investment philosophy. In January of 2022, the Green Sage DeCarb Portfolio was born.
What makes this portfolio special
Earth Equity focuses on positive investing – asking the question, “what do we WANT to own?” Historically, responsible investing has focused on exclusion, and while we do exclude all companies involved in the fossil-fuel industry, that’s where the similarities end.
What do we want to own in a decarbonization portfolio?
- Fossil-free energy – solar, wind, geothermal
- Energy efficiency
- Energy storage
- Green transportation
- Sustainable real estate
- Alternatives to fossil fuel products
- Regenerative agriculture
- Recycling and circular economy
