Calvert Global Water Research Index and the Calvert Global Energy Research Index

CRM will derive the index universe for the Index by identifying companies that manage energy use in a sustainable manner or that are actively engaged in facilitating the transition to a more sustainable economy through the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and the expanded use of renewable energy sources (the "Index Universe").

CRM selects Index components from the Index Universe that operate their businesses in a manner consistent with The Calvert Principles for Responsible Investment (the "Calvert Principles").

The Index is owned by CRM, which also serves as investment adviser to the Fund.
