The numbers are in and divesting from fossil fuels is paying off.
The seven-year investment returns of Genus Capital’s Fossil Free™️ CanGlobe Equity Fund show that investors who divested from climate-impacting fossil fuels in 2013 have not sacrificed returns. Far from it.
With divesting from fossil fuels for the seven-year period ending July 31, 2020, the fund has produced better results than the returns of its benchmark* and the overall Canadian stock market index, both of which include coal and major carbon producing industries.
