The concept of investing is changing due to the forces and concerns about the environment. Stocks and mutual funds have become a part of the green investing trend, which is aimed at enhancing the environment. Investment trends are turning towards the companies that engage in green energy production techniques and environmentally friendly practices. The importance of such investing is growing steadily in Canada among Canadians.

Savvy investors in the stock markets invest their efforts and money in the stocks of green companies listed on major stock exchange markets.

Such companies include those that have invested heavily in the new technologies of creating biofuels and solar panels for energy purposes. Others include those investments in wind power undertakings such as electric generators that use wind power. These trends are not only viewed as responsible business behavior but also a way of maximizing the use of the available resources to change the way businesses are done.

Exchange traded funds also provide an option for green investing. These are a mimic of stock indexes of companies with green investing policies. Mutual funds provide another option for green investors. These options are attractive, although their market is not driven by consumer trends, business zeal and demand. Most of the time, governments, regulation bodies and set standards regulate the activity in the green investing markets through policies and subsidies that affect the decisions of investors.

All these changes are an evolution that attempts to mend the disconnection between business and the environment. Going green is not just about the profits one makes from investments, but the impact of business activity on the environment.
