Nordic Capital wants to play a role in driving awareness of sustainability and implementing best practice within the private equity industry and is collaborating with other PE-companies to that end. To promote better disclosure of societal contribution by private equity, Nordic Capital actively engages in sustainability related forums and organisations. We aim to be transparent in the disclosure of key ESG related data for both Nordic Capital and our portfolio companies.
In 2019, Nordic Capital also engaged in several ESG related roundtables and conferences to share best practice with the private equity industry. We support and engage with organisations and forums where policy makers, businesses and academic professionals meets to discuss societal impact. During 2019, we spoke on sustainability at events organised by BVCA, RealDeals, IPEM, SVCA etc to share best practices with the industry. Additional to promoting best practice, Nordic Capital promotes opportunities to drive sustainable development within the private equity industry, the importance and benefits of a sustainable private equity industry in a national and international context, the importance of sustainable finance and how financing of sustainable companies is crucial in the development to a sustainable future.
