Responsibility – the consideration of Environmental, Social and Governance factors – has an ever-growing importance in business.
In private equity and the venture capital sector, the EU Sustainable Finance Regulation applies to alternative investment fund managers.
In its portfolio companies, Midinvest is a minority shareholder. By acting as an active member on board of directors, Midinvest aims to contribute to the enhancement of responsible and sustainable operations of each portfolio company.
The portfolio companies of Midinvest are unlisted micro and small enterprises operating in Finland. The sustainability factors vary between companies. Similarly, the risks arising from these factors are different depending on the substance and the scale of each business.
A sustainability risk is an environmental, social or governance (ESG) event or condition that, if it occurs, could cause an actual or a potential material negative impact on the value of an investment.
Sustainability factors mean aspects related to the environment, society and employees, respect for human rights, and issues relating to the prevention of bribery and corruption.
