Solactive Clean Water Index NTR
The Index aims to track the performance of a basket of stocks of companies that are actively engaged in the international clean water industry through the provision of technological, digital, engineering, utility and/or other services.
The Index is comprised of companies which are publically traded on various stock exchanges around the world that are either i) companies determined to have expertise in "Utilities" with a minimum Water Revenue Share of 90%, or ii) companies determined to have expertise in "Engineering" with a minimum Water Revenue Share of 50% or iii) companies determined to have expertise in "Technology" or "Digital" and a minimum Water Revenue Share of 5%. A company is only eligible for inclusion in the index if (1) it is of sufficient size (determined by reference to the total market value of the proportion of its shares that are publically traded) and (2) it is sufficiently "liquid" (a measure of how actively its shares are traded on a daily basis). Moreover, the Index excludes companies: (a) engaged in pure coal mining; (b) involved in the production of controversial weapons; or (c) that, for a continuous period of three years, have been classified as being in breach of at least one of the UN Global Compact principles, which is a set of globally accepted standards on human rights, labour, environment and corruption.
The universe of companies out of which the Index selection is made is refreshed annually in March. However, the Index is reconstituted semi-annually in March and September in accordance with the full selection criteria and all companies are equally weighted within the Index. On a monthly basis, the weight of each company is assessed and, if any of them exceed 15% of the index, the weights of all companies are adjusted so that they are again equally weighted within the Index.
