Finance in Motion's responsible investment activities are guided by a responsible investment framework developed by Finance in Motion. This framework integrates the most relevant principles and initiatives that Finance in Motion has signed: The Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), the Principles for Investors in Inclusive Finance (PIIF) and the Smart Campaign to promote Client Protection Principles. The framework, called ESGRID, thus analyses Environment, Social, Governance (ESG), Responsible Financial Performance (R) and Impact for Development (ID). ESGRID is integrated into the investment activities of the Funds that we advise and manage and serves mainly as a screening tool for potential investees with the aim of: i) promoting responsible investment practices such as promoting the environment, responding to customer needs, and overall responsible business models and balanced returns, ii) protecting final borrowers through appropriate financial products, appropriate lending technology, pricing transparency and a responsible HR management.

It is integrated into the Due Diligence process to apply in every Due Diligence.
