FFI Solutions was founded in 2013 under the name Fossil Free Indexes. Our goal at the time was simple: to provide an easy-to-understand solution that gave investors access to fossil-free responsible investing. This goal led to the creation of The Carbon Underground 200TM, which continues to serve as a basis for portfolio and product screening for over $25 billion in assets that have transitioned away from fossil fuel investments.
