BaltCap follows the most rigorous policies of responsible investment and believes that environmental, social and corporate governance (“ESG”) issues play an increasingly important role in today’s business environment.
We have incorporated ESG issues into our investment process and our daily operations, and see engagement in ESG issues as not simply a box-ticking exercise, but a prerequisite for delivering sustainable long-term growth within our portfolio.
Participating in Estonian Sustainable Business Index has now become a tradition for BaltCap, in 2017 we participated for the 8th consecutive year. We are delighted to report that BaltCap has been awarded a gold-level Quality Label in 2017.
BaltCap is a signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) since 2008 and a member of the Invest Europe (formely EVCA), abiding by the Invest Europe's Corporate Governance Guidelines and IPEV Investor Reporting Guidelines. In addition, BaltCap is a founding member of the Estonian, Latvian and Lithuanian Venture Capital Associations.
Recently we also implemented our own Code of Responsible Behaviour.
This Code acts as a set of principles for responsible, ethical and sustainable business practice that BaltCap confirms to follow and expects the portfolio companies to follow as well.
