We apply integrated value as lead principle. Learn more about our vision on sustainability
means to us?
At Sustainable Capital Group we apply the concept of Sustainability by incorporating Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) topics into each and every assessment we make for the provision of our services. Also, sustainability is embedded in all of our decision-making processes.
We believe in the next generation of sustainable finance that attaches a financial value to social and environmental impact; our ultimate goal is to be able to quantify the positive and negative impacts of projects and add them to our financial value calculation.
We are looking to challenge the barriers that halt the progress towards a sustainable financial system. We work hard to optimize value integration by creating positive impact alongside attractive financial returns.
It is evident that profit seeking business goals have failed to help society under the urgent global scenario. We have seen ESG and CSR principles guiding businesses towards a possible shift in business mindset, but at Sustainable Capital Group we agree with the line of thinking that these principles are not enough to provide the precise direction that businesses should aim when changing their strategies.
Instead of avoiding harm and being mindful of its impact in society, businesses should aim to positively impact the current environment on which they act upon, which means embedding environmental and social goals into their current profit seeking strategy. To use Michael Porter’s words: “creating economic value in a way that also creates value for society by addressing its needs and challenges.”
Our Theory of Change
Accelerating the transition towards sustainable finance, one transaction at a time.
We contribute to the transition of the financial system towards its management on the basis of integrated value instead of purely financial value.
We aim to do that with two distinctive, but complementary activities: the first is assessing each and every project on the basis of an integrated rationale and the second is applying our advisory, structuring and arranging services to the closing of transactions that raise future proof, green certified capital.
With each project assessment we aim to shift the mindset and prepare businesses and investors to work with long term, integrated value. With every sustainable transaction that we close, we aim to reallocate capital to integrated projects instead of conventional, profit seeking projects.
Sustainable Capital Group and the SDGs
The UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and their targets also bring great assistance for us to measure our impact. They provide an opportunity to demonstrate how our efforts to incorporate ESG issues into our finance approach are contributing to sustainable development.
For us to fully realise our mission, we must contribute to a sustainable global financial system which functions as catalyst for creating prosperous and inclusive societies for current and future generations.
With our activities, we intend to directly contribute to SDGs 8 and 9. Given our focus industries, we are also indirectly contributing to SDGs 3, 7, 9, 11, 12 and 13.
