Sustainability

We are committed to implementing sustainable business practices in investment analysis and decision making in our own activities as well as for our portfolio companies.

During the holding period, we actively follow our portfolio companies’ relevant ESG metrics and use Upright Project methodology to measure the net impact of the companies.

We strive to be a major contributor to national economic wellbeing. We support companies with their growth plans in order to further support job creation. Together our portfolio companies employ over 6,000 people.

We believe that companies with a diverse team and inclusive access to opportunities are the ones attracting and keeping the best talent, and thus, ensure the future success. We help companies promote diversity and provide equal opportunities to all employees regardless of their age, gender, race, religion, disability, origin or other status.

Transparency and ethical operations are in the core of our value creation. We help our portfolio companies to improve governance procedures by e.g. strengthening the board of directors as well as instilling reporting structures.
