About Us

We're on a mission to get everyone invested in a clean energy future

Sweeping wildfires, flash flooding, and extreme drought are all part of our new climate reality. It’s really overwhelming to think about how you as an individual can address this problem.

 

Where you bank and how you invest can be your most impactful ways to fight climate change. GreenPortfolio is here to help you navigate these financial decisions so you can avoid funding oil and gas exploration and grow clean returns by investing in companies, projects, and services that offer climate solutions.

Why we started GreenPortfolio

Greenwashing is on the rise

Over the past ten years after meeting while working together at a chemical company, it’s become increasingly apparent to us that someone needs to address the rampant greenwashing occurring in the world of personal finance.

ESG is not the answer

When we personally tried to adjust our own accounts and investments, we found a lot of products claiming to help the environment didn’t at all. An ESG fund loaded with fossil fuel derivatives or a credit card that says it’s “green” purely because it is compostable does not adequately address the climate crisis.

Everyone deserves to know what their money is funding

We started GreenPortfolio because everyone deserves to understand what their money is up to while it sits in the bank. We deliver a transparent assessment about the climate impact of your finances – flagging where your money supports fossil fuels while highlighting your investments in climate positive products.
