Sierra Club: Use Choice For Change



Communities around the world are facing rising seas, stronger storms, ruthless wildfires, and extreme temperatures as the result of our reliance on dirty, dangerous fossil fuels.

Divesting from fossil fuels and investing in companies with strong environmental practices is a way that both large institutions and individuals can take action to pressure big banks to stop financing fossil fuel projects that contribute to climate change.

Aspiration is a financial firm that offers a sustainable investment strategy that is 100% fossil-fuel free. What makes Aspiration different?

Aspiration creates financial products that let you make money and make a difference.

Aspiration's sustainable investing strategies are not only 100% fossil-fuel-free, but they invest in companies with strong environmental, labor, diversity, and governance practices. Studies show that companies that pursue these strategies are more valuable over time than those that don't. Sustainable investing is not only a way to create impact; it can be a smart avenue to pursue as well. And you can invest with as little as $100.
