Quadriga is committed to ensuring that the consideration of environment, social and governance “ESG” issues is fully integrated into all of its private equity investment decisions. Quadriga believes ESG standards are imperative in: protecting a company, management and employees; creating more transparency; strengthening the trust of customers and stakeholders; and increasing the company culture and company value.

In 2007/08, Quadriga initiated its internal ESG programme & database which was designed as a tool to analyse, control and manage the increasing number of tasks covering ESG requirements. This has been developed and improved over time to suit the needs and expectations of Quadriga’s Limited Partners, portfolio companies and other stakeholders and ESG is now a key value driver within the α-System.

Quadriga’s ESG programme implements and incorporates ESG practices throughout the investment process, from initial screening right through to the eventual divestment of investments. Quadriga believes that operating with ESG practices should not be an ad-hoc consideration but should be integrated into business as usual and is key to delivering long-term, responsible & sustainable growth. As a reflection of its commitment to achieving this, Quadriga has been a signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment since 2012 and is rated by ROBECO as a long-term leader in complying with their Responsible Entrepreneurship Program.

It is interesting to see that the European Limited Partners especially those from the Netherlands are leading the RI initiatives. They are followed by the French Limited Partners which are already embedded in a legal environment asking French entrepreneurs to measure and improve their carbon footprint.
