WHY WE BELIEVE DRIVING ESG
IS SO IMPORTANT
It is our mission to get Fintech and SaaS businesses
to Series B and beyond.
It is our goal to ensure that each company that we invest in is ready for their next round, with the right narrative, metrics, strategy and focus to succeed.
It is our vision to invest in and support the growth of the great businesses of tomorrow.
We believe passionately that the successful businesses of tomorrow will be those that prioritise growing as sustainable and inclusive companies, with strong business governance.
This is why, right from the outset we have made a commitment to drive ESG initiatives both within our fund and in our portfolio companies.
OUR ESG COMMITMENT, GUIDED BY
THE PRINCIPLES FOR RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT (PRI):
We will incorporate ESG issues into our investment analysis and decision-making process
We will be an active owner and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices
We will seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issuesby the entities in which we invest
We will promote acceptance and implementation of ESG initiatives within the investment industry
We will report on our ESG activities
Our approach at Volution is first to ensure that the business policies and practices that we have in place are aligned with ESG, and second, to work with our founders and CEOs to drive ESG initiatives within Volution’s portfolio companies.
VOLUTION’S CARBON CARRY INITIATIVE
While we need to look at performance across the board in terms of Environmental, Social and Governance issues, in most cases, the greatest challenge for the tech companies we invest in is their carbon footprint — driven largely by server usage.
This is why we have pioneered the concept of Carbon Carry.
With this initiative, Volution both rewards the CEOs and founders who drive ESG within their businesses and commits a share of our profits toward carbon offsetting and removal.
