CSR - a shared responsibility
As a Danish private equity fund, we have an exceptional focus on CSR (corporate social responsibility). We are aware of our social responsibility and work every day to integrate social and environmental concerns into our activities. We set high, but realistic, standards in terms of CSR for ourselves, our portfolio companies and our future investments. We encourage all portfolio companies to work with CSR in their day-to-day business, and we regard CSR as an important criterion in our evaluation of potential investments.
We comply with all of the DVCA’s guidelines for responsible ownership and good corporate governance - read more here. We have then gone a step further by developing CSR policies on anti-corruption and good governance. These enable us to work every day in a way that reflects our core values - openness, trust and accessibility.
CSR in Capidea’s portfolio companies
When it comes to our shared social responsibility, Capidea places big demands on its portfolio companies. Many of these companies are required to report on their CSR activities under Section 99a of the Danish Annual Accounts Act, but we encourage all of our portfolio companies to work strategically in this area. We know that CSR is a dynamic process, so we work continuously to ensure that companies integrate CSR into their core values and insurance strategies. We therefore focus on the approach each company takes to CSR, how existing initiatives are working and how things can be optimised and improved in the future.
Our ultimate goal is therefore to put CSR on the agenda for all our portfolio companies.Kontakt os
