Dreyfus is planning to offer the Dreyfus Sustainability Fund, a capital growth fund that will invest in environmentally friendly companies that are committed to “sustainable operating practices, products and services,” a Securities and Exchange Commission filing shows.

 

Such companies, for example, would include those producing renewable energy or energy-efficient products or services. The filing said it would look for companies that are taking advantage of environmental opportunities.

 

The fund, which will be jointly run by John R. O’Toole and Jocelin A. Reed, will benchmark against the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index.
