Thinking and acting sustainably.
Our actions have consequences. Therefore, we set ourselves high ESG goals (Environmental, Social, Governance) and monitor our investments based on these aspects. The ESG assessment not only influences our decisions but is also part of our investment process. We consider ESG as a source for creating sustainable value.
We aim to be a role model. As an investor, business partner and employer.
