Our investments and project development activities always contribute to the SDG’s and to the Dutch economy.

In everything we do we live ‘impact first’. We see financial returns only as a necessity to make our operations sustainable.

Two pillars

We were given two specific assignments by law.

  • The first is to provide solutions to global challenges and create impact on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s).
  • The second is to contribute to the Dutch Economy and its future earning capacity.

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

Impact framework

Given the two pillars that underlie our identity and to ensure focus, we have chosen two primary SDGs:



Five secondary SDG’s

But although we underwrite all SDG’s we selected five secondary SDG’s that fit well with our strategy and market focus:

  • Zero Hunger (SDG 2)
  • Good Health and Well-being (SDG 3)
  • Clean Water and Sanitation (SDG 6)
  • Affordable and Clean Energy (SDG 7)
  • Responsible Consumption and Production (SDG 12).

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.
