Investment Strategy. The VegTech™ Plant-based Innovation & Climate ETF (NYSE: EATV) is an actively managed fund designed to offer investors exposure to the growing plant-based foods and materials trend through VegTech™ Companies. EATV is a pure-play in plant-based innovation, and we believe the only fund offering global exposure dedicated to this emerging sector.


  • Plant-based food, ingredient and supply chain companies that produce or enable the production of efficient, cruelty-free and sustainable food options.
  • Plant-based materials companies producing animal-free leather and animal-free collagen for cosmetics for sustainable options.
  • Plant-based agriculture technology companies that grow more plants in less space through indoor vertical farming, no manure, and robotics.
  • Alternative protein companies capable of transforming plant-based carbohydrates and other ingredients into proteins, using precision fermentation, cell-based agriculture, and advanced technologies.

EATV has exposure to large, small and mid-cap stocks.

The above types of companies make primary products through unique innovation and technology utilizing plants or plant-derived products. Further, these companies work towards a more efficient, climate-friendly, and sustainable food and materials supply system. We believe this sector will likely experience significant growth as part of a large-scale secular trend. We call these VegTech™ Companies.

Reasons to invest in VegTechTM

Invest For Impact & Climate Change

Animal agriculture is responsible for 14.5% of greenhouse gas emissions, including methane and nitrous oxide.1 We invest in companies innovating with plants and plant-derived ingredients to make animal free products, thus helping to address climate change. We believe we won’t fix climate change without fixing our current food and materials supply system.

EATV is certified by ACA Global’s Ethos ESG as Carbon Neutral without buying credits. View EATV’s Impact Comparison report here. View the BCG Sector Impact Analysis: here.

Invest For Efficiency & Sustainability

Our current food supply system is inefficient and unsustainable. It is a major source of deforestation,2 using disproportionate amounts of water and land such that creating enough food for a growing global population won’t be feasible with our current resources. We invest in plant-based innovation companies, including alt material and alt protein companies, which are less resource intensive, producing prolific and nutritious food with less land and water. We are at the tip of what we believe is a long-term secular trend shifting towards plant-based innovation.

Invest For Disruption

As we enter the fourth industrial revolution, the food and materials supply systems are on the precipice of a global shift. We are investing in the game changers, disruptors and trend-makers with the vision and technology to create a future in which health and food security are sustainable. Through investing, we are helping to shape a healthier, more environmentally friendly and cruelty-free food supply system, driven by the demand of Gen X and Gen Z.3

VegTech™ is the technology and innovation that utilizes at least one plant ingredient to create a more efficient, animal-free food and materials supply system: part of a global, secular trend.

We believe that the global supply system is on the cusp of a shift that will revolutionize how we produce foods and materials. This secular trend is driven by the need to produce food and materials more efficiently and with a reduced environmental impact.

Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of the negative impact that traditional agriculture, food, and materials production have on the environment, their health and animal welfare. They want to buy products that address these concerns.

The VegTech™ EATV fund is actively managed and a pure-play in plant-based innovation companies and the companies that support them.

We are an actively managed fund covering a dynamic market and a dynamic industry. We spend a considerable amount of time investigating, researching, evaluating, and vetting the companies that are part of the fund to ensure that they qualify for inclusion.

The fund’s fees are in line with thematic funds and naturally higher than typical index funds that simply follow a published index.

As an example, an investment of $10,000 in EATV would have an expense of $75.

The strategy of the fund is to invest in companies that are actively innovating with plants and plant-derived ingredients in the global supply chain, and that produce primary products that are animal-free. These companies positively impact planetary, human, and animal health.

VegTech™ Invest Management Advisory focuses on companies they believe will be the leaders, enablers, disrupters and beneficiaries of a global shifting food and materials supply system towards plant-based innovation. They believe this is a long-term, secular trend.

Ethos has certified VegTechsTM Invest’s Plant-based Innovation & Climate ETF, EATV (NYSE: EATV), as carbon neutral. This is the first ETF that Ethos has certified as carbon neutral based on the impact of innovating to replace animal products by providing plant-based innovation solutions for a more resource efficient and less damaging food and materials supply system.

The Plant-based Innovation Certification considers carbon emissions avoided across the full lifecycle of plant-based proteins and products. The certification is not intended to indicate “absolute” zero emissions, but rather the relative impact when compared to meat and other alternatives.

In order to identify emissions reduction potential, Ethos reviewed a variety of lifecycle analyses (assessments of the carbon footprint of a product over its entire "lifecycle") from the University of Michigan, Boston Consulting Group, and others. These analyses quantify the typical emissions reduction associated with converting from beef to plant-based meat, implementing green vertical farming, investing in plant-based products and innovations, and making other transitions to plant-based industry.

Ethos compared the estimated carbon footprint of the holdings in EATV (the Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions that EATV is responsible for through its investment in each holding) with the expected impact of emissions that are avoided for each holding. Based on this analysis, Ethos determined that the aggregate carbon avoidance potential of all EATV holdings was greater than the estimated carbon footprint -- i.e., an investment in EATV results in a net reduction of carbon, when considering the expected emissions avoided.

“With EATV, VegTech™ Invest offers a unique strategy that seeks to capitalize on the new food revolution paradigm of Plant-based Innovation and Alternative Proteins. EATV's investment approach seeks groundbreaking solutions that address the global food and material supply system that work toward stabilizing food insecurity and reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions. Ethos is proud to partner with VegTech™ Invest as we take actionable steps toward a net-zero economy,” says Ethos’ Dan Carreno.

Powered by YourStake, data reveals that an individual’s investment in EATV may have 4.4 times more impact on their animal welfare footprint than their plant-based diet alone.

As an example, a $10,000 investment in EATV for five years would mean not being responsible for the death of 8047 animals killed by public meat companies. That is 4.4 times the number of animals impacted by one person’s diet change in the same time frame, as compared to diet numbers from the Vegan Calculator. These statistics are as of Sep 30th, 2022.

YourStake data also reveals that EATV does not invest in agricultural producers and traders linked to deforestation.
