ETHO

Fund Description
ETHO is the first broad based, diversified, socially responsible and fossil-free exchange-traded fund that does not have exposure to the energy sector. The diversified index ETF avoids fossil fuel companies and selects equities based primarily on an assessment of an equity s carbon footprint. The ETHO ETF seeks to provide investment results that, before fees and expenses, correspond generally to the price and yield performance of the Etho Climate Leadership Index (ECLI), an index of more than 350 companies listed on the NYSE Arca stock exchange that have the smallest carbon footprint in their industries. To build the ECLI, Etho Capital uses a positive selection methodology to review more than 5,000 of the most commonly traded public companies and identify the most carbon-efficient climate leaders in each industry. Using climate performance data from Trucost, Etho Capital ranks almost all public companies by carbon emissions per dollar invested and selects equities that are 50% more carbon efficient than their industry average into the ECLI s holdings. All fossil fuel, tobacco, weapons and gambling companies are eliminated from the index. Finally, a screen is conducted based on environmental, social and governance performance data with expertise from NGO partners and input from global stakeholders.
