Avanz Capital believes that long-term financial returns are enhanced by investing with consideration of ESG factors such as climate risk, environmental impact, clean energy, energy efficiency, health and safety, food and water security, human rights, clean production, resource efficiency and stakeholder interests, which have assumed unprecedented competitive and material importance, and can profoundly affect a company’s brand and reputation, its social license to operate, and its profitability. This is why Avanz Capital believes that strong sustainable financial returns and responsible investing are inextricably linked.
Avanz Capital practices responsible investing by systematically identifying, managing and reducing environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) risks throughout its investment activities. Avanz Capital also actively pursues opportunities to add value through enhanced ESG practices, with the goal of boosting asset value and increasing returns. Through its due diligence, monitoring, and supervision efforts, Avanz Capital strives to ensure that its investment decisions, through any investment vehicle such as a pooled investment fund or a managed account including its Fund Investments and Direct Co- Investments, are implemented in accordance with the Avanz Code for Responsible Investment.
