Equita has always been strongly committed to sustainability but in recent years this has become even more centric, due to its threefold importance for our Group.
Firstly, as listed company Equita shall act in a sustainable manner to achieve long-term returns for shareholder and satisfy all stakeholders’ needs.
Secondly, Equita invests clients’ money and the best way to get sound returns is to identify the universe of valuable, sustainable companies and adopt a sustainable investment process. That is why our research team is continuously studying new methodologies to identify best sustainable practices for SMEs and why we have formally adopted the United Nations’ Principles for Responsible Investments.
Lastly, one of the key objectives of Equita is to create value for clients, thus knowing sustainability better than others creates an important barrier to entry and it helps us to provide investors better insights and corporate clients tailored strategic advisory in complex deals.
