BERKELEY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Carbon Collective Investing, LLC (“Carbon Collective”), a climate change-focused online investment advisor, today announced the launch of the Carbon Collective Climate Solutions U.S. Equity ETF (CCSO), an actively managed exchange-traded fund that invests in publicly traded companies that are dedicated to solving climate change.
Climate change poses a serious threat to society and more investment is needed in companies that are taking steps to reverse the decades-long damage caused by climate change.
“Climate change is the most important issue facing the world. We still have time to avoid the worst case scenarios, but only if we invest capital in climate change solutions that can be adopted and implemented quickly,” said Zach Stein, co-founder and chief investment officer, Carbon Collective. “Companies that are directly involved in climate change solutions have become an important area of the marketplace and investors need a pure-play and low cost way to invest in this space.”
The fund invests in approximately 200 companies of any size market capitalization within sectors such as clean energy, electrified transportation, efficient buildings, circular economy, sustainable foods, and industrial electrification.
Carbon Collective conducts extensive searches to identify companies that are building solutions within these sectors using a variety of sources including public filings, Internet searches, cross referencing applicable indices, and publicly available market research as well as through relevant industry/sector news or blogs and independent third-party sources such as Project Drawdown and the International Energy Agency.
Only companies that earn at least 50% of revenue from climate solutions are included in CCSO. The fund is rebalanced on an annual basis.
More investment in climate-focused companies allows their climate technologies to become more widely adopted and enables investors to participate in the solution for climate change.
“There are hundreds of companies, both well-known and under-the-radar, that are dedicated to fixing climate change,” said James Regulinski, co-founder, Carbon Collective. “Our fund aims to give investors exposure to these companies in one place. Climate change solutions is an asset class and we’re excited to help investors gain exposure to this important and rewarding space.”
Toroso Investments, LLC serves as investment adviser to the fund and Carbon Collective as its sub-adviser.

Investments involve risk. Principal loss is possible. Climate Change Consideration Risk. Applying climate change and other filters to the investment process may exclude securities of certain issuers for non-investment reasons and therefore the Fund may forgo some market opportunities available to funds that do not use these criteria. New Fund Risk. The Fund is a recently organized management investment company with no operating history. As a result, prospective investors do not have a track record or history on which to base their investment decisions. Models and Data Risk. The composition of the Fund's portfolio is dependent on proprietary quantitative models as well as information and data supplied by third parties. Foreign Securities Risk. Investments in securities of non-U.S. issuers involve certain risks not involved in domestic investments and may experience more rapid and extreme changes in value than investments in securities of U.S. companies.
While the fund has an effective registration with the SEC it is not available for trading until September 20, 2022.
