Investing in Green Stocks - Green Companies


Green Eco Friendly Investments
2008


Many companies are implementing procedures and starting whole
divisions aimed at "cleaning up their act". The initiative to go
green is stronger then ever and companies that see the demand to
follow suit are gladly jumping aboard instead of losing customers.
This isn't to say that every business that goes green is doing it
for purely selfish reasons, certainly there are those businesses
that have a general concern about the environment, but the financial
motivation is still there.

One way for consumers to show companies what changes are needed is
through the stock market. By buying and trading shares in companies
consumers can show what the public opinion of that company is. This
is just one reason why eco conscience consumers should invest in
stocks from companies that have made a commitment to going green.
There are plenty of eco friendly companies, mostly small in nature
that are offering stocks, mutual funds, and even bonds to the
public. These companies' goods and services all have a similar goal
in mind, the preservation of the Earth by lessening the negative
impact of civilization. These green companies include those who
consult others on the use of eco friendly products, makers of
organic and natural products like food or clothing, and renewable
energy firms.

The renewable energy companies seem to be the most popular green
stocks as they promises to be around for quite a while. Stocks in
renewable energy are still relatively inexpensive when compared with
fossil fuels and the likelihood of renewable energy to grow is great.

While eco friendly stocks are not yet popular with those wanting a
long term investment, there are certainly many people who are
blazing ahead. These people are commonly young adults who are pretty
much guaranteed to see their green stocks accumulate a profit in the future.

Of course, it is important to discuss any potential purchase of a
stock whether green or other with a broker as green stocks seem to
be gaining a foot-hold in the market.

Consumers should be cautious before they invest money into companies
that promise eco friendly products and services. The fact is that
Eco friendly is used by many as an arbitrary term, something to
garner attention when in actuality the company does more to harm
then to help the environment. Many of the eco friendly companies are
still relatively small and unknown so research will be required to
make certain that you are investing in a company that is truly green.

GREEN STOCKS TO INCREASE YOUR GREEN

There are plenty of mutual funds and stocks on the market today that
are great for investors. An example is the Sierra Club Stock Fund
which uses rigid criteria to make sure that companies in the stock
fund are truly eco friendly. Investors will find other mutual funds
like this on the market today along with individual stocks.

There are many Australian specific stocks that offer the
environmentally conscience investor a way to feel guilt free with
their stock options.

CleanTeq is a relatively new company established in 1990. The
primary objective of CleanTeq is to provide air pollution control
and water management methods. In the Australian Stock Market,
CleanTeq is listed as CLQ.

AnaeCo is using eco friendly methods in waste management and has
seen recent growth. Publicly listed as ANQ on the Australian Stock
Market, the price for this stock is still relatively low with
significant room and chance of growth and represents a great
opportunity for investors who would like to diversify their stock
portfolio by adding an eco-friendly company.

Green Invest Ltd. is a company interested in environmental solutions
and empowering investors and the public to pursue green solutions.
On the Australian Stock Market, Green Invest Ltd is listed as GNV
and is now seeking aggressive options to boost growth.
