The Indxx US Circular Economy Index (IUSCEI) tracks the performance of 50 US-listed companies that are representative of the transformative shift from the linear model of economy to a circular one. The index includes five sub-themes central to the circular economy, providing investors access to the shifting paradigm in growing segments such as biofuels, solar power, and waste management, along with collaboration and content sharing platforms. Companies that cumulatively derive revenue greater than, or equal to, 50% from categories comprising a sub-theme, are ‘pure-play’ companies. All of the ‘pure-play’ companies from the sub-themes will form the selection list. The top 10 companies from each sub-theme, by largest total market capitalization, will form the final index. One cannot directly invest in an index.
