OUR SUSTAINABILITY & IMPACT APPROACH REFLECTS OUR VALUES: ENGAGEMENT, EXCELLENCE AND AGILITY
Idinvest Partners has been committed to a Responsible Private Equity approach since 2002. We are convinced that solid, sustainable growth is only possible if we take into account non-financial factors (also known as environmental, social and governance [ESG] factors). As an investor, Idinvest Partners has the responsibility to allocate the capital committed by those investing in its funds to support entrepreneurs working on projects that prepare for the future.
This responsibility is expressed through Idinvest Partners’ investment strategies. Far from being a constraint, it has a positive impact on the firm’s added value and performance. With this in mind, in 2017 Idinvest adopted its Sustainability & Impact approach, which adds an impact assessment to its decision-making and investee monitoring processes, using the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as its analytical framework. Idinvest Partners is among pioneering investment firms in working to identify contributions made by its investments toward a more sustainable, inclusive society.
Idinvest Partners applies this philosophy across all its activities and takes a continuous improvement approach throughout the entire investment cycle.
A COMMITTED, MULTI-AWARD-WINNING APPROACH
A PRI signatory since 2011, Idinvest Partners aims to help companies understand and manage their impact on the Sustainable Development Goals. Idinvest Partners is particularly committed towards goals concerning climate change, as a signatory of the International Climate Initiative.
Idinvest Partners has been consistently recognized for its commitments:
A TEAM DEDICATED TO ADDRESSING SUSTAINABILITY & IMPACT ISSUES
The role of Idinvest Partners’ Sustainability & Impact Committee, established in 2011, is to monitor our commitments and set medium-term targets. This five-member body meets with each investment team’s ESG officers.
A word from the CEO
