Fossil fuel companies — from “supermajors” like ExxonMobil to small oil-field service companies — have been the most volatile and weakest financially performing sector in the U.S. for the last decade. That was before the Covid-19 pandemic brought on a sudden economic slowdown, and the price of oil collapsed to a nearly two-decade low. With a wave of debt coming due through 2024, a prolonged period of low demand and lack of credit could push many fossil fuel companies into bankruptcy especially the small ones that may be gobbled up in a wave of acquisitions.

There is a way to avoid this risk — fossil free investing. It’s not just about saying no to investing in the companies profiting from the destruction of the climate, it is about de-risking your portfolio. Choosing fossil free funds for your retirement savings may offer protection from energy sector volatility, and those freed-up dollars can be reinvested in sustainable clean energy and other sectors important to the transition to a low-carbon economy.
