Investing with Impact. We create long-term positive impact
Building on our many years of experience with responsible investments, we want to make an even greater contribution to sustainable development in the future. We therefore support the companies we advise in making more proactive contribution to solving global challenges through their corporate actions, thereby generating a positive impact that goes beyond conventional ESG standards.
The targets for worldwide sustainable development are set within the framework of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). They are a common blueprint for creating better living conditions worldwide as well as an example for sustainable utilization with the resources on our planet, our environment and our society - now and for the future.
We focus on companies whose core products and services contribute to the achievement of the UN Sustainable Development Goals or, alternatively, demonstrate the potential to become such a company with our support through transformative improvement or impact expansion.
Looking at the biggest challenges in the DACH region, we have identified three impact objectives where we can create the greatest impact based on our experience and industry knowledge.
Human Well-being & Personal Growth
We actively promote social change and support an aging and migrant population by investing into health care and education solutions and services.
Preservation of our Environment
To preserve the ecosystem, QC invests in products, services and solutions which make an active contribution to environmental enhancements through innovation.
Through digitalisation and the use of innovative technologies we invest into sustainable business models, supply chains and enable the transition to a greener economy.
To this end, we have developed and implemented a strategy and a platform of measures, processes and management tools that translate our high commitments to business growth and transformation into achieving long-term positive impact for the environment and society.
The goal of Quadriga Capital funds is to generate risk-adjusted financial returns that simultaneously have a measurable positive impact on society and the environment. Consequently, the impact on society and the environment is taken into account throughout the entire investment process of Quadriga Capital funds. We support the portfolio companies of Quadriga Capital funds in the development of impact goals in line with their business model and the UN SDGs. We help them to classify their impact within the framework of the "Five Dimensions of Impact" of the Impact Management Project (IMP). Based on the IRIS+ Catalogue of Metrics, we help companies quantify their impact. These steps enable us to jointly conduct impact monitoring and maximise long-term positive impact through pro-active management.
As an expression of this commitment, Quadriga Capital funds VI is a signatory to the International Finance Corporation (IFC) Operating Principles for Impact Management (Impact Principles).
An external Impact Advisory Board monitors and advises us on the implementation of the Impact Principles.
