ESG Investing

At Nordian Capital we recognise the impact private equity investments may have on the environment and society. We consider it important that both Nordian Capital and our portfolio companies operate in an environmentally and socially sustainable way.

Respect is our core value. Respect for our management co-shareholders and all employees of our companies and respect for the environment and society. That is what we stand for and how we work.

We believe that environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects have an important impact on value creation. ESG factors can have a considerable impact on the performance of our portfolio companies as ESG factors offer opportunities to enhance revenue, reduce costs and reduce risk.

Therefore we strive to continuously address and incorporate sustainability in our own business processes and those of our portfolio companies. Our approach focuses on 3 principles:

  1. Sustainability is incorporated into our investment analysis and decision-making processes;
  2. Together with management we define an ESG policy with priorities and targets;
  3. In addition to regular monitoring and reporting on ESG, as active owners, we address ESG issues and opportunities on a ongoing basis.

Accordingly we integrate sustainability factors into our decision making process before selecting an investment. Additionally we monitor and engage with our portfolio companies with the aim of improving the ESG performance of our portfolio companies and setting minimum requirements for our investments.
