INVESDOR INSIGHTS | 01.04.2022
We at Invesdor believe in personal responsibility and taking the future into our own hands. Our mission is to empower all to actively shape the change by investing in companies they believe in.
As an investment platform our role is to offer our investors opportunities and guiding information to make sustainable investment decisions. We believe that profitability and sustainability have synergy effects and complement each other.
Invesdor wants to be proactive and at par with the expectations from our crowd regarding sustainability. The need for change, transformation, and foremost adaptation, is present to contribute to meeting the global sustainability goals.
Below is a description of our actions to help investors make sustainable investment decisions.
We have established a working group across our business units to align on what is happening in the field of ESG (environmental, social, and governance factors) and how to be adaptable and flexible when addressing corporate social responsibility internationally.
There are plenty of standards, norms, principles, and regulations regarding sustainability in the world and particularly in Europe. We have done a strategic decision to support the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, adopted by the United Nations in 2015.
The 17 goals are a universal call-to-action to end poverty, protect the planet, and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.
We have raised sustainability as an important criterion for the selection process of suitable investment projects to Invesdor’s platform. Together with safety, liquidity, and profitability, companies’ performance indicators within ESG, information about their supply chains and their impact on the environment and society is being increasingly more thoroughly assessed as part of the selection and due diligence process at Invesdor. It is not only hard figures that matter, also soft values.
We will gradually offer investors more information and communications to address sustainability in the upcoming projects. For example, we will help companies explain more clearly in their pitches how their products and services contribute to sustainable development.
By asking the issuers to disclose their policies and statements regarding the environment, sustainability, social responsibility, health, and safety as part of the due diligence process, we will enable engagement with diligent counterparties that are aiming for the equal goals.
Sustainability is central to economic growth. SDGs are fueling new business: the creativity, knowhow, technology, and financial resources from all of society is necessary to achieve the SDGs in every context. Goals such as quality education, affordable clean energy, and sustainable cities and communities serve as blueprints for new start-ups.
Invesdor will encourage companies to embrace SDGs as part of their strategic vision – and investors to use sustainability parameters as part of their investment criteria. Those that do so most likely recognize the risks of inaction or see the opportunity in being proactive. All stakeholders – businesses, individuals, institutions – are responsible for changing the world. We all can do better in a sustainable world.
Stay tuned, we will provide further information on our sustainability assessment process.
