With sustainability and disruption as a central focus of the fund, River Delta Capital views environmental, social, and governance (ESG) dimensions as potentially crucial for any scale-up to succeed in the world of tomorrow.
Often the very success of the companies River Delta Capital has invested in is a result of disruption in one of these dimensions and the long-term focus of the fund means that each will be viewed by River Delta Capital as one of the indicators of success and is inherently part of our research framework.
As part of its ESG-framework, River Delta Capital is also subject to EU regulation 2019/2088 on Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) that proposes rules for financial market participants regarding adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors.
River Delta Capital does not currently consider this preset framework as defined by Article 4 SFDR as there is no global scientific and societal consensus in the view on and impact on ESG factors. River Delta Capital as such prefers to use its own research framework to capture the risks and opportunities related to environmental, societal and governance dimensions.
