First vegan ETF launches on NYSE

Claire Smith (pictured), vegan entrepreneur and impact investor, has launched the first vegan ETF, the US Vegan Climate ETF (VEGN), on NYSE, designed to track the Beyond Investing US Vegan Climate Index (VEGAN).

The index is based on a filtered version of Solactive’s Large Cap and Large and mid-cap indices with screens for a variety of ESG considerations, primarily animal harm and exploitation, as well as fossil fuels, environmental damage, and human rights.
