Being sustainable is not only about acting responsibly and mitigating risks, but also about value creation and competitive advantage. Our ambition is to ensure that our companies have the required foundation for long-term sustainable growth.
To deliver on our ambition we integrate ESG in our investment approach. We examine ESG impacts, risks, and opportunities thoroughly before making an investment decision. During ownership we provide the tools, focus and capital that our companies require to improve ESG management and performance. Commitment to the United Nations Global Compact and implementation of our five-step approach to ESG management is required for all our companies. You can read more about our approach in our Annual Review & Sustainability Report.
Reports and policies
STATEMENT OF NO CONSIDERATION OF ADVERSE IMPACTS ON SUSTAINABILITY FACTORS
Axcel currently does not consider adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors in the manner prescribed by Article 4(1)(a) of Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 (also known as the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation or the “SFDR”) and currently applies Article 4(1)(b) of SFDR.
We are committed to responsible investment practices that consider our environmental and social responsibility. Our approach is outlined in detail in our sustainability policy.
We are very supportive of the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation and are working to establish the required data collection and reporting mechanisms to confirm our consideration of principal adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors. We will review our readiness to comply at the end of 2021.
All private equity funds managed by Axcel Management pay an annual fee to a charitable foundation that operates independently of Axcel Management.
The foundation awards grants to non-profit activities including research, business-related education of all kinds, and general charitable humanitarian work.
