          Osmosis stock selection is entirely based on the output of the Model of resource Efficiency. Please refer to 13.3 for details.

13.3. Additional information. [OPTIONAL]

The Osmosis model of resource efficiency (MoRE) is a multi-factor systematic process which assimilates objective environmental-based factors of resource intensity with a market-based factor of economic value to produce a robust investment portfolio of sustainable resource efficient businesses.


Stock selection is based on three resource intensity factors:


• Energy; by measuring the observed and reported level of absolute greenhouse gas emissions from fossil fuel combustion, industrial processes and other sources owned or controlled by a company;

• Water; by calculating the cost of water used in the production process of a company purchased directly for operations or abstracted for use from local supply;

• Waste; by calculating the total costs generated from the disposal of waste in normal company operations, classified as landfill, incineration or recycling and including nuclear waste.
