At Dansk Vækstkapital we want to create growth and return in an ethically and socially responsible manner. Our investment principles stipulate that ethical and environmental aspects must be considered when making our investment decisions. Our investment policies and strategies reflect this. Therefore, we include environmental, social and governance considerations in our decision-making and in our daily procedures. We require the funds we invest in to act responsibly, and we follow a number of established principles for responsible investment ourselves.

Our points of reference for the CSR policy are the UN Principles for Responsible Investments (UNPRI) and the principles outlined in the UN Global Compact initiative. Furthermore, we follow the codes and guidelines established by Invest Europe (the European Private Equity and Venture Capital Association, EVCA) and the Danish Venture Capital and Private Equity Association (DVCA).

01.5. Provide a brief description of the key elements, any variations or exceptions to your investment policy that covers your responsible investment approach. [Optional]

Our approach to ESG is based on internationally agreed principles for sustainable development, primarily UN Global Compact and PRI.

As a responsible investor, our approach to ESG-factors is focused on dialogue, information, and cooperation.  As a part of our due diligence processes, we strive to identify possible ESG-issues and we instruct potential investee funds to give us their own account of their ESG profile.

We include ESG-questions in our due diligence process and we require, that the funds we invest in commit to handling ESG-issues based on the ten UN principles. Even for well-prepared funds, things can go wrong. If a negative impact-issue occurs, we go into constructive dialogue with the fund to stop and avoid further negative impact.
