Etho Capital

Trucost data supported Etho Capital in building the world’s first diversified fossil-free index.

Etho Capital is a mission-driven investment management company committed to helping solve climate change by bringing sustainable investing mainstream.

The company used Trucost data to create the world’s first diversified fossil-free index ETF, The Etho Climate Leadership Index (ECLI).

“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.”
