See below for the full list of every green building stock in Carbon Collective's Climate Index.

Net zero is the pinnacle of buildings.

Buildings and construction account for 38% of the total global CO2 emissions and 35% of total energy use. But it doesn't have to be that way. 

Green buildings, also known as net zero buildings, are becoming increasingly common around the world. A green building has zero net energy consumption, producing as much energy as it uses in a year. In some months it may generate excess electricity; at other times it may require electricity. On balance, it's self-supporting.

They achieve net zero energy consumption by utilizing all of the building efficiency solutions available: green roofs, efficient heating, cooling, and water systems; better insulation; distributed energy and storage; and advanced automation. Building orientation and fenestration are designed to take full advantage of the sun. And indoor spaces are often designed to maximize human wellbeing and comfort. 

We need more green buildings.

Net zero building projects are being rolled out in Hawaii, Massachusetts, California and Chicago in the United States. Sonnenschiff solar city in Freiburgh, Germany is also designing and constructing green buildings. But to combat climate change, we need many, many more.

According to Project Drawdown, if 9.7% of new buildings are constructed to be net zero by 2050, they will help avoid 7.1 gigatons of greenhouse gas emissions. 

We need more green buildings.

In the Climate Index, we take all of the companies that offer products and services that help green building projects. Then we take out the ones that derive a greater share of revenue from fossil fuel-dependent business than from green buildings. And as always, we exclude penny stocks whose share prices were lower than $0.50 in our last update. 

So the Climate Index includes the companies that are at the forefront of expanding green buildings.

If you are a Carbon Collective member, you own all of these companies through the Climate Index.
