Investing with Impact. We create long-term positive impact
Building on our many years of experience with responsible investments, we want to make an even greater contribution to sustainable development in the future. We therefore support the companies we advise in making more proactive contribution to solving global challenges through their corporate actions, thereby generating a positive impact that goes beyond conventional ESG standards.
The targets for worldwide sustainable development are set within the framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). They are a common blueprint for creating better living conditions worldwide as well as an example for sustainable utilization with the resources on our planet, our environment and our society - now and for the future.
We focus on companies whose core products and services contribute to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals or, alternatively, demonstrate the potential to become such a company with our support through transformative improvement or impact expansion.
In doing so, we focus on eight of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals:
- Good health and well-being
- Quality education
- Clean water and sanitation
- Affordable and clean energy
- Decent work and economic growth
- Industry, innovation and infrastructure
- Sustainable cities and communities
- Responsible consumption and production
To this end, we have developed and implemented a strategy and a platform of measures, processes and management tools that translate our high commitments to business growth and transformation into achieving long-term positive impact for the environment and society.
The goal of Quadriga Capital funds is to generate risk-adjusted financial returns that simultaneously have a measurable positive impact on society and the environment. Consequently, the impact on society and the environment is taken into account throughout the entire investment process of Quadriga Capital funds. We support the portfolio companies of Quadriga Capital funds in the development of impact goals in line with their business model and the UN SDGs. We help them to classify their impact within the framework of the "Five Dimensions of Impact" of the Impact Management Project (IMP). Based on the IRIS+ Catalogue of Metrics, we help companies quantify their impact. These steps enable us to jointly conduct impact monitoring and maximise long-term positive impact through pro-active management.
As an expression of this commitment, Quadriga Capital funds VI is a signatory to the International Finance Corporation (IFC) Operating Principles for Impact Management (Impact Principles).
An external Impact Advisory Board monitors and advises us on the implementation of the Impact Principles.
The annual disclosure statement on the Impact Principles will be published here until February 2022.
