Sustainability is an integral part of Credo's investment philosophy. We truly believe that sustainable business models with positive contributions to society will build more financial value. And we believe Credo will have the biggest impact by focusing on positive change in our companies, rather than just allocating capital to already perfectly sustainable businesses. We look for company owners and management with an honest commitment to prioritize climate change, to treat employees well and to govern in a compliant and transparent way.
Across our portfolio, we believe that:
Profitable and growing companies play a key role in creating a sustainable future
We can create competitiveness and financial value by better use of resources: Energy, raw material and people
Credo has extraordinary influence through our partnership model
Focusing on a limited number of specific sustainability goals in each portfolio company will have the biggest impact on the overall sustainability agenda
Create tangible, significant, positive change in every company
Focus on select few goals with substantial impact potential
Leverage positive impact to drive financial returns
