Nordic Capital actively engages with its portfolio companies to promote sustainability
Nordic Capital actively engages with its portfolio companies during the ownership stage to promote the importance of sustainability, drive sustainable performance and share best practice. It sets out clear expectations for portfolio companies, ensuring that sustainability is addressed appropriately at boardroom level and throughout the organisation.
Nordic Capital’s Sustainability Team provides portfolio companies with ongoing support to help them strengthen their sustainability agendas and develop appropriate processes in order to mitigate key sustainability risks and realise potential opportunities.
Environmental, social, and corporate governance
We are committed to investing responsibly and our ambition is to develop companies into successful and sustainable businesses. We seek to do this in a responsible way, with a clear understanding of the environmental and social impacts. We encourage our portfolio companies to consider UNGC’s 10 principles when developing their own sustainability strategies.
Nordic Capital also measure the contribution of active ownership and driving sustainable progress in the portfolio prioritised and aligned with six of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We have identified the most material to Nordic Capital and our portfolio companies and aligned strategy and reporting to underlying targets and measures. We actively encourage portfolio companies to, at minimum, meet external standards for sustainability.
