CapMan has published its Sustainable Investments Snapshot for 2021
CapMan has published its third Sustainable Investments Snapshot, which covers CapMan’s approach to the integration of environmental, social and governance factors in our investment process and the progress in our funds.
CapMan is an active investor in growing businesses, real estate and infrastructure in the Nordic countries. As active owners, we influence through decision-making and by setting and promoting best practices, and funds managed by CapMan can drive change on a broad scale.
Investing is a direct way of influencing behaviour and promoting activities that are aligned with a framework of values. At CapMan, we are serious about investing in companies, activities and assets that contribute to the well-being of communities in which we operate, while adhering to good governance practice.
This past year, we have continued to develop our approach to sustainable investing by going over processes, gathering data, conducting materiality analysis and defining where we can make a real difference.
Select sustainability development in our operations and portfolio in 2020:
- SDG 5 Gender equality: +3% more women on average in Buyout portfolio company management groups compared to 2019
- SDG 8 Decent work and economic growth: +17% average jobs growth in Growth portfolio companies in 2020
- SDG 13 Climate action: 23% reduction in CO2 emissions from 2019 levels for Norled, CapMan’s portfolio company accounting for the largest share of CO2 emissions in CapMan’s portfolio
- SDG 13 Climate action: 65% reduction in CapMan Group CO2e footprint from 2019 levels, mostly due to reduced business travel
