Responsible investment is integrated into GEF's mission and investing practices. GEF considers environmental, social, and governance factors as central to its mission of investing in sustainable businesses globally.  We believe responsible investment is essential to generating strong returns, by (i) specifically targeting investments that create environmental and social benefit, (ii) providing rigorous decision-criteria to manage risk and identify opportunities, and (iii) avoiding investments that cause environmental harm or social inequality.

The GEF Sustainability Approach contains strategies, frameworks, resources, guidance, processes, and training for managing ESG risks, identifying opportunities, and creating value in our portfolio companies.
