Powered with data by YourStake, the
EATV ETF Underscores Its Commitment to
Investing for Animals, the Planet and People.
ANGELES, Oct. 18, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Powered
by YourStake, new data reveals that an individual's investments in
EATV (NYSE:EATV) may have 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.
"EATV is the first and only ETF to define and
lead the Plant-based Innovation investment sector,
investing in animal-free alternatives for sustainable,
cruelty-free and resource efficient production and consumption,"
says CEO Elysabeth Alfano. "Given
our commitment to this, we knew the numbers for animals would be
good. However, we were shocked to see what kind of impact
investing in EATV can have, even more than being on an
animal-free diet alone."
"We were so pleased when these numbers were released because we
are dedicated to our mission of investing for both returns and the
innovation of animal replacements in the food and materials supply
system," adds Fund Manager and President, Dr. Sasha Goodman. "The great animal numbers aren't
the only bit of good news. Data powered by YourStake also
reveals that EATV does not invest in agricultural
producers and traders linked to deforestation."

At a time when socially responsible investing and ESG funds are
under attack, VegTech™ Invest leaders Elysabeth and Sasha feel
that it is their imperative to be transparent about the numbers and
show investors their commitment to investing for returns as well as
for the betterment of people, the planet and animals.
According to the United Nation, animal agriculture contributes
14.5% of the world's greenhouse gas emissions and is responsible
for 37% of the anthropogenic methane emissions. At the 2021 United
Nations Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, Scotland, over 100 countries
including the United States
pledged to reduce methane emissions by 30% or more by 2030.
Animal agriculture is also a leading cause of deforestation.
Over 80 billion animals are factory-churned yearly, more than
10-times the number of people on earth.
