Our sustainability policies

Sustainable Investment Policy

Coming soon

Coming soon

Sustainability Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)

The EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) ((EU) 2019/2088) aims to make sustainability factors better understood and more comparable.

eEquity undertakes to comply with the regulation and to be transparent on sustainability matters in our investment process and in our active ownership.

Sustainability risks

Sustainability Risks refers to an environmental, social or governance event or condition that, if it occurs, could cause an actual or a potential material negative impact on the value of the investment.

eEquity integrates sustainability risks, as referred to in Article 3 of the Disclosure Regulation, throughout the investment process in accordance with eEquity’s Investment Policy. A sustainability risk assessment is performed as part of the Due Diligence processes in order to identify any material sustainability risks in relation to the investment. Following the Due Diligence, relevant mitigative actions are identified alongside other strategic measures, and integrated into an investment specific roadmap. All identified risks must be approved as acceptable and in accordance with eEquity’s general risk policies before an investment opportunity is pursued. Sustainability risks are monitored and continuously evaluated on a regular basis as part of the ongoing follow-up of the investment roadmap.

Remuneration policy

eEquity remuneration model is described in eEquity’s Remuneration Policy and includes both fixed and variable remuneration. The variable remuneration is based on a performance assessment, in which both financial and non-financial criteria are considered. The criteria include a number of targets and KPI’s, among them sustainability related ones, and considers the employee’s compliance with internal rules and certain outlined criteria for screening, sourcing and investment decisions with regards to sustainability related matters and sustainability risks.

Adverse impacts

Principle Adverse Impacts refers to negative effects of the investment decision on sustainability factors.

While eEquity will continue to aspire to consider sustainability matters in the investment process, eEquity does not currently consider principal adverse impacts of investment decisions as per Article 4 of the SFDR. eEquity has chosen not to do so for the present time, as the requirements on the content, methodology and presentation of such impacts remain to be finalized. eEquity will evaluate and update our position accordingly when the regulatory technical standards outlining the content and definition of such impacts have been finalized.
