By now, it is well known that investors, especially millennial investors, have significant interest in investing in companies that reflect their care about environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues. Whether you are a millennial or not, this is important to pay attention to because millennial investors have a growing presence in the market, so their trends and preferences could affect your strategy.

If you want to get on board with the environmental investing trends that could be growing in the near future, you may want to consider investing in an exchange-traded fund (ETF). An environmental ETF provides you with access to a variety of companies within the environmental investing sector. This could be more beneficial than investing in individual stocks because investing in an individual stock can be riskier and it requires a lot of research to make an informed decision.

Clean living ETFs might be part of the future of environmental investing

Clean living is a trend that is growing in the United States and around the world. People have a growing interest in food, energy, transportation, health and beauty products that are better for either the environment or the human body, or both. 

At the time of writing, Amplify ETFs has filed for an ETF focused on companies in the clean-living sector. If approved, it will be launched under the ticker DTOX. Although there are already ETFs that focus on energy and some that focus on health and wellness, DTOX would be the first of its kind with a vested interest in both.

As ESG concerns grow among the public and news investors, we may expect to see more clean-living ETFs and similar opportunities available in the near future.
