We consider sustainability essential for value creation. Our goal is to make sustainability a cornerstone of our portfolio companies' daily operation and commercial strategy, as well as contribute to a more sustainable world.

Sustainability - a part of our value creation

Our goal is to create sustainable value and to build better companies. That is why we prioritize sustainability. We assist companies in making sustainability tangible and emphasize the commercial aspects of a sustainable strategy. We guide all of our companies through a sustainability process, collaboratively crafting an ambitious and realistic sustainable strategy.

We understand sustainability as an essential part of value creation in small and medium-sized enterprises. We support our companies throughout the process and help with both the administrative and regulatory challenges. We acknowledge that all companies are different and face different challenges and opportunities,

but taking one small step at a time can make a big difference. Creating a sustainable strategy is a project we face together, and our portfolio companies are never left to face challenges alone.

Sustainability in our portfolio

When it comes to corporate responsibility, we set high, yet realistic, expectations for our companies. A large portion of companies are required to report their sustainability activities according to Section 99a of the Annual Accounts Act, but we encourage all companies to work strategically with the area. We know that sustainability is a dynamic process. We continuously work to ensure that the entire portfolio integrates sustainability into the daily operation, risk management, and commercial strategy.

We help our portfolio companies meet the standards of the UN Global Compact, complete yearly assessments on environmental, social, and governance factors, use the results to make improvements, and report their progress on important sustainability issues.

Diversity is highly valued by the management teams in our portfolio. At Capidea, we have a policy that all boards must include at least one female member.

Our ultimate goal is for sustainability to become a top priority for all our portfolio companies.

We are responsible investors who believe that sustainability creates value not only for society but also for the individual company. We help make sustainability tangible, and we focus on the commercial aspects.
