What comes to the results of our annual ESG query 2019 we see that awareness of responsible investment approach has grown positively among our investee funds. The response rate to our query was high, 96,9 % (in 2018 ESG query: response rate 96,5% ja 2017 ESG query: response rate 88,2%). During the reporting year 2019 six of our investee fund managers joined PRI as a signatory and one has make to decision to join PRI. Also several GP's started to publish their annual ESG report. 42 % of respondents said that they somehow take the SDGs at their companies into account. Based on our results 2019, it is interesting and important to see that more and more GP's have defined KPI's to follow the ESG targets they have set for their portfolio companies.
We have started to share transparently our views through social media e.g. blogs. In addition, we published eQ Plc's Sustainability Report 2019 (available on eQ's web page).
