As a dedicated healthcare investor aiming to address unmet medical needs in our target markets we significantly contribute to U.N. SDG 3 ( Good Health & Well-Being) with all our investments. We combine strong financial returns with a holistic sustainability approach, based on a strong and tested ESG framework, to optimize tangible and intangible value creation with measurable impact contribution.
Our “Value Creation Playbook”, developed over many years of successfully building companies, combines tangible and intangible value creation in the pursuit of attractive financial returns from our invested capital and the creation of high-quality, sustainable and crises-resilient market leaders in their field. Our companies play an important role as responsible and trusted corporate citizen in their communities.
We apply a comprehensive ESG Framework to all our portfolio companies. This Framework is based on the IFC Performance Standards which we have applied since 2010, and the U.N. PRI Principles of Responsible Investing, which we joined as early as 2015. More recently we have also become a signatory of EpiHC, an IFC initiative, promoting 10 ethical principles of healthcare investing.
We commit to organizing our work with our investors as well as our Portfolio Companies in a way that contributes to the aspirational goals as laid down in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and more specifically, delivers high quality of care to patients, protects the health and safety of employees, advocates diversity, sustains the environment, upholds highest levels of integrity and compliance, and contributes to the positive development of local communities.
Our investment activity contributes mainly to U.N SDG 3 but also to UN SDGs 5, 8, 12, 13, and 16. The implementation of our comprehensive ESG Framework to all our investments, across all funds, allows us to create impact by actively managing tangible and intangible value creation.
