About Progressive Investor
Progressive Investor is a monthly, online green investing newsletter that guides people toward investments in companies leading the way to a green economy. This trusted source helps individuals and portfolio managers understand the trends and identify the leading green companies.
Unlike other newsletters, we cover all green sectors including renewable energy, energy efficiency, smart grid, energy storage, green building, the recycling industry, water, organic foods and healthy lifestyles. We also cover multinational corporate green pioneers that are making a commitment to sustainability and acting on it.
We've been publishing Progressive Investor since 2002, when there were only a couple dozen green stocks on the public markets! Since then, hundreds of green companies have entered the public markets - the combination of small green pure plays and large, leading corporations can easily form the basis of a strong green portfolio, along with mutual funds and/or ETFs. See our list of pure plays on Green Stock Watch.
Progressive Investor was the first green investment newsletter produced in the United States. Now we have a
handful of competitors, and gazillions of free blogs that offer fragmented information. It may be tempting to
rely on free information, but you get what you pay for! Instead of glitz, bells and whistles, you’ll find in depth, yet concise reporting based on research
and interviews with leaders in green portfolio management.
You'll learn about the top green companies, large and small, across the full range of industry sectors worldwide. Look no further if you want a concise way to keep up with the trends and the players in the field, develop a green stock portfolio, or invest in green mutual funds and ETFs. Individual investors, financial advisors and private equity investors use it to make informed, financially sound investments.
It's not as easy as it looks to invest in renewable energy, energy storage and smart grid. Although many companies are now well established, they are still volatile on the stock market. It's important to understand the trends, the companies and market sentiment. Other green sectors, such as water and healthy living are more mature and can diversify a portfolio.
Each year, we produce a special issue that focuses on one segment of the green marketplace: we've produced reports on solar, wind, water, recycling, micro-fuel cells, investing in community, and energy storage. Another annual event is the SB20- the World's Top Sustainable Stocks.
Let us help you make informed, financially sound investments that support your green values and give you exposure to the rising green economy we all want to be part of.
To get a sense for the wide range of green investing topics we cover see our back issues. Issue older than two years are free to read.
"I'm quite impressed with the depth and content quality of your newsletter. I not only read it, I act on it. I have purchased shares of many companies mentioned in Progressive Investor or other companies that I found while doing more research on those companies. All those new investments are the best performing part of my portfolio - plus I feel good about being an investor in each of them."- Guylaine Nadeau, Canada
Put simply, companies that outperform on the environment, outperform financially. Empirical research demonstrates this. By investing in companies with top environmental records, you can produce superior financial returns and support companies that enhance life on earth. Strong environmental performance equates to better management overall, which translates into stronger earnings and greater shareholder value for green investors.
