Approach > Sustainability
We stand for sustainability
We believe that doing good is good business. We are here to support entrepreneurs grow – not only today but in the long-term. Our aim is to turn sustainability considerations into concrete actions and to work together with founders on action steps – be it big or small (for now).
Long-term growth support
Our approach to responsible investing encompasses the whole investment lifecycle – from entry to exit and beyond. We incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects in our initial investment assessments, selection process and exclusionary policies. With this we aim to find the companies with the highest growth potential – aka the ethical ones.
In value creation we act as active owners supporting founders every step of the way. Be it in terms of creating an ESG policy, mapping and monitoring sustainability KPIs or executing carbon footprint evaluations and further roadmaps for CO2 neutrality. We follow UN’s Sustainable Development Goals throughout our investment portfolio and adhere to UN’s Principles of Responsible Investment.
Being serial entrepreneurs ourselves, we hope to add value and act as natural sparring partners with you – in both the good and the bad times. With over 40 years of entrepreneurial experience and specific ESG expertise in our team we hope to cater our support to your needs – with dedicated ESG advisory. We look forward to walking the walk with you and building for successful exits.
We fund beautiful companies
We work closely together with our portfolio companies in terms of ESG policy, KPIs and creating value with sustainable business practices. From the beginning of 2020, we are launching several action points to help our founders to grow sustainable businesses. For more details visit our portfolio page.
