Screening Venue: In-house and outside

Screening Party: Praxis Research staff

Screening Database Used: MSCI ESG Data & Analysis

Screening Process: Praxis Mutual Fund's Stewardship Investing Guidelines use a "positive magnet screening" process that evaluates companies based on their ability to reflect a set of six positive core values. By the reverse of this process, there are certain industries and activities which are deemed inconsistent with the core values and which are summarily avoided. Such industries include alcohol, gambling, tobacco, abortion-specific products, and military contracting. New companies are added to Praxis Mutual Fund's "social universe" of companies 1) following a successful research/conclusions at the request of fund managers, 2) when certain remedial actions are taken by a company bringing them in acceptable alignment with the Guidelines, or 3) at the recommondation of social research staff based on unusually high social responsibility characteristics. Companies are removed from the Social Universe when information is received that moves the company's social evalution outside of acceptalb eparameters to the Guidelines. Fund managers exercise complete discretion in investment decision-making, based on market realities and the needs of the portfolio.
