Since the EU established the new transparency framework, Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), AGC has taken steps ensuring to become compliant. As a framework that is part of the EU’s broader efforts to encourage sustainable and responsible investing and to align the financial sector with the objectives of the Paris Agreement and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), SFDR has implications for financial institutions operating within the European Union and managing funds for EU-based clients.
As a global impact investment management company, we recognize the importance of considering the impact of our investments on society and those who inhabit their communities. We firmly believe that integrating sustainability considerations into our decision-making process will not only contribute to positive social outcomes but also generate long-term value for small businesses, partners, and stakeholders.
The focus of our fund and social impact goals remains unwavering as we align them with industry standards. Our continuous efforts are directed towards promoting financial inclusion, fostering SME growth, providing opportunities for women entrepreneurs, and contributing to the development of stronger financial ecosystems. By adhering to recognized industry best practices, we aim to create a meaningful and lasting impact, empowering communities, and promoting a more equitable and sustainable future.
AGC’s compliance with SFDR signifies our dedication to providing our investors with investment opportunities that align with their sustainability objectives and targets. Our investors can now access detailed information on how sustainability risks are considered in our investment decisions, the impact of our investments on ESG factors, and how we contribute to a more sustainable future.
