We believe in responsible investing. By engaging in a broad set of sustainability considerations – including environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues – we can improve the financial performance of our portfolio companies as well as the alignment between investors and society at large.
Whether these relate to improved health and safety practices, better energy efficiency, ensuring high standards of labour practices or ethical supply chain management, all of these areas have a direct impact on the financial and reputational risks to which Alantra Private Equity and our investors are exposed.
As part of our commitment to responsible and ethical investing, we are signatories to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment since 2011. These voluntary principles provide a useful framework for incorporating ESG issues into mainstream investment decision-making and ownership practices.
