SFDR STATEMENT ON ESG
Financial market participant: Deutsche Invest Capital Partners GmbH:
Deutsche Invest Capital Partners GmbH partly considers adverse impacts of its investment decisions on sustainability factors. The present statement is the consolidated principal adverse sustainability impacts statement of all funds managed by Deutsche Invest Capital Partners GmbH.
Description of principal adverse sustainability impacts:
Investments that would harm sustainability factors are generally excluded. Impacts on sustainability factors are partly considered in the due diligence process taking due account of our fund size, the maturity of a fund, the nature and scale of our activities and the specificities of the venture capital business (investments in start-ups). DICP applies the proportionality principle.
DICP considers sustainability risks, as integral part of the risk analysis, in the investment decision making process – not in a formalized way. The results of the respective due diligence is taken into account for the investment decision.
Responsible and sustainable Investing is an important mission for DICP’s management. DICP has decided to improve, to start developing a more systematic ESG-policy while growing. Work is in progress. After final decision on ESG policy, we will publish more information about our policies on the identification and prioritisation of principal adverse sustainability impacts and indicators as well as any actions in relation thereto taken or planned.
In this context we will check a possible adherence to responsible business conduct codes and internationally recognised standards and reporting and if relevant the degree of its alignment with the objectives of the Paris Agreement.
According to article 5 SFDR we will include a statement on how those policies are consistent with the integration of sustainability risks in our remuneration policies information.
