April-June 2015 Quarterly Performance Report
April-June 2015 Quarterly Performance Report
Sydney, July 6, 2015 AEST (ABN Newswire) - The China CleanTech Index provides the definitive measure of the performance of Chinese cleantech companies that are listed on stock exchanges around the world.

The cleantech industry is split into a number of sub-sectors as detailed in the table below. Each of the sub-sectors contains companies that have both environmental and economic benefits.

Geothermal - Hot dry rocks and conventional
Low Emissions Transport Technologies
Carbon Trading
Solar Thermal and Photovoltaics
Energy Efficiency & Biomaterials
Waste Management & Recycling
Energy Storage & Fuel Cells
Environmental Services
Wave, Tidal & Hydro
Green Buildings
Wind Generation

The cleantech sector is fundamentally different to Socially Responsible Investments (SRI) or Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) performance. SRI and ESG look at incremental improvements in company performance and can be seen as 'operational hygiene' measures that find the best in class. Cleantech focuses on companies whose output positively enhances the communities and ecologies in which they reside. It is about doing 'more good' rather than 'less bad'.

With over 160 companies falling under the coverage of the Index and with a combined market capitalisation of over 2.2 trillion Renminbi (US$370 billion), the China CleanTech Index presents a picture of the Chinese cleantech industry's growth in a single measure.

The Index is weighted by market capitalisation and is benchmarked against the following indices to show its relative performance:

- Wilder Hill New Energy Global Innovation Index (NEX) - which measures the performance of global clean energy stocks

- Cleantech Index (CTIUS) - which measures the performance of global cleantech stocks

- China Shanghai Composite Index (SHCOMP) - which measures the performance of stocks listed in Shanghai.

- MSCI World (MSCI) - which provides a measure of the performance of global stock markets.

The rules for the formulation and management of the Index have been developed with reference to global best practice. An overview of these rules is provided in the annual performance report.

The China Cleantech Index is updated each month and published on the SinoCleantech website at and on the Australian CleanTech website at It is published internationally in conjunction with Cleantech Investor ( and in China in conjunction with Top Capital (

China CleanTech Index Performance

The China CleanTech Index underperformed all of its four benchmarks for the month of June 2015 and recorded a loss of 12.9%. This was driven by both big losses across all Chinese stocks due to the volatile Shanghai stock exchange.

The China CleanTech Index fell from 74.7 to 65.0 over the month of June losing the gains of the last two months. This compared to the NEX loss of 6.4%, the CTIUS loss of 2.2%, the Shanghai Composite loss of 7.3% and the MSCI loss of 2.5%. The China CleanTech 20 recorded a 8.9% loss.

The twelve month gain for the China CleanTech Index now stands at 49.0% outperforming all but the Shanghai Composite. This twelve month gain is being driven by the China Hydro Index (+158%), the China Efficiency Index (+78%) and the China Water Index (+65%).
