Our Positive Screen

Eco Investor has developed a rigorous three-point positive screen to identify environmental investments.

1. Environmental activity - where the core business activity is a solution to an environmental problem;

2. Environmental focus - where the company is wholly or largely focused on this environmental activity; and

3. Environmental commitment - where the company has a commitment to being an environmentally positive business.

The business activities that pass this screen include clean energy and energy efficiency, waste management and recycling, pollution control, sustainable food, environmental engineering, timber alternatives, carbon sinks, and many other clean technologies.

When applied to the ASX, currently about 80 listed companies meet these criteria. Eco Investor analyzes the business stage, risk/ return and investment performance of these securities so investors can identify if they are suitable for their investment strategy.

To help manage risk and return, investments are classified using Eco Investor's “Portfolio Status Strategy”. This is a Four Stage Core-Satellite Strategy that identifies the status a security should have in a portfolio. The four stages are:

Core Securities: Securities with a track record of profits and dividends.

Pre-Dividend Securities: 1. Securities that are profitable and likely to pay dividends in the short to medium term; or 2. securities that once were profitable and dividend paying but have temporary issues with one or both of these; or 3. securities that are profitable and pay dividends but have quality or outlook issues.

Pre-Profit Securities: Securities where the companies are earning revenue but are not yet profitable.

Pre-Revenue Securities: Securities where the companies are not yet earning revenue from the sale of core products.

The Portfolio Status Strategy allows all investors, from the conservative to the aggressive, to identify the securities that match their risk and return profile.
