ESG

 

The DeA Capital platform is a signatory to Principles of Responsible Investments (UN PRI). DeA Capital Real Estate and DeA Capital Alternative Funds are aware that a careful management of all Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues is crucial for creating value. This is the reason why they promote their engagement and incorporate the responsible investment program.

 

The companies have decided to adopt a specific ESG policy, and to incorporate the related principles (Environmental, Social and Governance) into their investment analysis and processes, as well as into their business policies and practices.

 

The focus point are the six principles promoted by the United Nations in 2006, which were developed by a group of international institutional investors to enhance the importance of adopting the ESG polices in the investment process:

 

The UN principle milestones are:

 

  1. INCORPORATE ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes
  2. BE ACTIVE owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices
  3. SEEK appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest
  4. PROMOTE acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry
  5. WORK together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles
  6. REPORT on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles
