Shares are bought and sold at market price (not NAV) and are not individually redeemed from the ETF. There can be no guarantee that an active trading market for ETF shares will develop or be maintained, or that their listing will continue or remain unchanged. Buying or selling ETF shares on an exchange may require the payment of brokerage commissions and frequent trading may incur brokerage costs that detract significantly from investment returns.

CHGX was the first ETF to be recognized by EthosESG for becoming carbon neutral. Constituent carbon footprint data is provided by the Carbon Disclosure Project. Portfolio-level carbon footprint is equal to the sum of each portfolio constituent scope 1 and scope 2 carbon emissions multiplied by percentage of ownership (position size/market capitalization). Carbon footprint analyses are performed prior to portfolio rebalancing each quarter. EthosESG has completed an independent audit of CHGX’s carbon footprint and carbon credits and determined that CHGX is a carbon neutral fund. EthosESG defines carbon neutrality for a fund as reducing more tons of CO2 emissions (for example, through valid carbon storage credits) than the fund creates through the Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions of its holdings. More information on EthosESG’s methodology at https://ethosesg.com/carbon-neutral-certification.
