Corporate performance can no longer be viewed through the prism of profitability alone. This idea is now widely shared by the financial community.
We have decided to go further, and to address the management of carbon emissions as seriously as financial management.
This is why we, the Yotta Capital Partners team, are committed to set quantified objectives for carbon reduction.
We furthermore aim to create quality jobs in our portfolio companies’ regions.
We believe that development is a complete process, which must combine economic and extra-economic (social and environmental) considerations.
Yotta believes that the three components of performance are linked: economic, environmental and social.
Yotta implements the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation which came into effect on 10th March 2021. In accordance with this Regulation, Yotta Capital Partners has formalized its sustainability-related disclosures report which details how sustainability risks are integrated into our investment process.
This report also details how principal adverse impacts are integrated into the investment process.
