We offer the first 401(k) climate impact platform.1

The average 401(k) has 33x more emissions than the company itself. The AtmoSphere helps sustainability teams measure the financed emissions from 401(k)s, report those emissions, and learn how to work with benefits teams to reduce those emissions.

We run a climate-friendly fund made for 401(k)s.2

The Sphere 500 Climate Fund (SPFFX) tracks the Sphere 500 Fossil-Free Index. It invests in the biggest 500 US companies, minus fossil fuel companies. We vote our shares for climate action. It's designed to check the key boxes fiduciaries look for in a 401(k) offering.

Together we are changing this.

For the first time, there’s a company that’s entirely focused on helping you improve your 401(k) climate impact.

It can be hard to get a climate-friendly investment option onto a 401(k) plan. The AtmoSphere platform helps sustainability teams understand how to reduce  401(k) emissions without having to change providers, and the Sphere 500 Climate Fund (SPFFX) is a climate-friendly fund option that can be added to existing retirement plans.

We created the Sphere 500 fund to offer a simple and transparent approach to sustainability that checks all the boxes that benefits teams look for when qualifying an investment fund for a 401(k) or 403(b) retirement savings plan.

We don't invest in oil & gas companies.

The first step in addressing climate change is to send a message to oil & gas companies loud and clear: no more business as usual. It’s time for the status quo to change.

We do reduce emissions.

The Sphere 500 Climate Fund has lower emissions than the S&P 500, because it excludes fossil fuel companies, which are the biggest contributor to global emissions.5

We do vote your shares for the planet.

Did you know that mutual funds vote on company shareholder proposals on your behalf? Most funds automatically vote however the board recommends. SPFFX votes for the planet.

As a company focused on helping stop climate change, Voltus needed this solution. I was excited when so many on my team signed up and even happier when they told me how easy the process was.”

A fund that can check all the boxes.

Affordable

Environmentally-friendly funds often are priced at a premium(4). SPFFX is priced 8.5x lower than most climate-friendly funds, and is more in line with standard index funds. This pricing is intended to make it appropriate for 401(k) plans.
