About the Fund
ETHO® is the first diversified index ETF that avoids fossil fuel companies while selecting equities based primarily on full Scope 1-3 carbon footprint and overall ESG alignment. 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®, a broad-based index of publicly traded U.S. companies that are more climate efficient and ESG sustainable than their peers.
About the Index
To build ETHO®, Etho Capital’s team uses a positive selection methodology to review more than 10,000 commonly traded public companies to identify the most climate-efficient leaders across industries. Using proprietary climate performance data that includes both supply chain and direct impacts, Etho Capital ranks each public company by climate emissions per dollar invested selecting the equities that are substantially more climate-efficient than their industry average for inclusion into the ETHO® index. All fossil fuel, tobacco, weapons, and gambling companies are eliminated from the index. Additionally, the Etho Capital team conducts qualitative research to understand the material environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance of each company to reduce additional ESG risks. Finally, Etho Capital consults with experts from industry, academia and NGO partners on relevant corporate ESG issues as a final check against ESG risks.
