Risk and volatility information is not available for a fund less than 3 years old.

An investment in the fund could lose money over short or long periods of time. You should expect the fund’s share price and total return to fluctuate within a wide range. The fund is subject to the following risks, either directly or through its investments in the underlying funds, which could affect the fund’s performance: Although ESG U.S. Stock ETF is listed for trading on the Cboe BZX Exchange, Inc., it is possible that an active trading market may not be maintained. Trading of Vanguard ESG U.S. Stock ETF on the Cboe BZX Exchange, Inc. may be halted if Cboe BZX Exchange, Inc. officials deem such action appropriate, or if ESG U.S. Stock ETF shares are delisted from the Cboe BZX Exchange, Inc., or if the activation of market wide “circuit breakers” halts stock trading generally. The fund’s performance could be hurt by:

  • Stock market risk: the chance that stock prices overall will decline. Stock markets tend to move in cycles, with periods of rising prices and periods of falling prices. The fund‘s target index tracks a subset of the U.S. stock market, which could cause the fund to perform differently from the overall market. In addition, historically, small- and mid-cap stocks have been more volatile in price than the large-cap stocks that dominate the overall market, and they often perform quite differently. Small and mid-size companies tend to have greater stock volatility because, among other things, these companies tend to be more sensitive to changing economic conditions.
  • ESG investing risk: the chance that the stocks screened by the index sponsor for ESG criteria generally will underperform the stock market as a whole or that the particular stocks selected for the FTSE US All Cap Choice Index will, in the aggregate, trail returns of other funds screened for ESG criteria.
