Our ESG Pledge

Every company is an actor of change. Our pledge is to be conscious and deliberate in our impact.

Technology does not exist in a vacuum -- it impacts the world in ways that go beyond finances. As a company, we know this and so we commit to investing responsibly and embody the principles of sustainability in our own operations.

“ESG has become an important factor when evaluating investments in the venture capital world. We incorporate ESG principles into our portfolio because we believe they drive positive societal and environmental change and are important to long term competitive success.”
— Monica Johnson, Partner & CFO, NGP Capital

Our ESG Policy

We believe that the decisions we make should have meaningful, measurable, and responsible social and environmental impact. We want to create a world where everyone has the opportunity to thrive. To do this, we prioritize positive social impact, diversity, and sustainability both within our own company and in the investments we make through the three focal pillars of our ESG policy:

1. Our internal operations
2. Our investment decisions and due diligence
3. Our portfolio’s impact as stakeholders

Portfolio impact

9 Sustainable Development Goals are directly met through our investments

In 2023, we conducted our second in-depth screening of all our portfolio companies which showed that circa 70% of our portfolio companies had an ESG relevance. We intend to perform this screening on a yearly basis to monitor progress and showcase results. Additionally, we actively engage with our portfolio companies to promote good ESG practices and continuously monitor progress and success in their ESG journey.
