Our ambition is to ensure that our companies have the required foundation for long term sustainable growth. By achieving our ambition, we consistently generate value for our companies, our investors, and society.
Our responsible way
We integrate sustainability practices in all stages of the investment process.
Our primary contribution to society is building strong and resilient companies that contribute to the economy. We do this in a responsible way. All our companies are required to commit to the United Nations Global Compact and implement good governance practices.
Our companies are asked to work proactively to respect human and labour rights, to protect the environment and to prevent corruption and bribery. By taking a strategic approach to working with sustainability, we also help our companies to identify and capture sustainability driven commercial opportunities.
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.
