In everything we do we live ‘impact first’. We see financial returns only as a necessity to make our operations sustainable.
We were given two specific assignments by law.
We’ve made the strategic decision that our ‘sweet spot for impact’ is where both assignments coincide. That’s what we mean when we say we are an impact investor in Dutch solutions for global challenges.
Although The Netherlands is a tiny country, it constitutes the 18th economy of the world. It has an open economy that thrives on innovation and sustainable, international trade. Companies contributing to the Dutch economy have a lot to offer in bringing smart solutions to make the world a better place. It is our purpose to foster these solutions and make the necessary investments feasible.UN Sustainable Development Goals
But although we underwrite all SDG’s we selected five secondary SDG’s that fit well with our strategy and market focus:
For the coming years we will develop an integrated working method to deploy these SDG’s in everything we do. From measuring impact as part of our decision making for investments to how we report on our achievements to external stakeholders. Where possible we’ll make use of already available (international) standards and best practices.
