Our Convictions

Naxicap Partners is firmly committed to developing the companies in its portfolio in a responsible manner. We believe that encouraging sustainable growth has a real positive impact on our portfolio and generates long-term value creation.

Ethical Social Governance is a long-term commitment. In line with Naxicap Partners’ value, we provide concrete ideas and development strategies to support companies in our portfolio. We aim to reduce operational risks and support actions in favour of balanced corporate governance.

We want to help reduce the environmental impact by stimulating innovation and creativity and we seek to set fair social standards. We are firmly convinced that the accumulated experience gained through working with companies has a positive impact on the performance of portfolio companies.

Under the new European law, Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), we are required to describe the exact way in which we integrate environmental, social and governance risks into our investment decisions. This law also provides for the measurement of any negative environmental, social or governance impacts of our investments.

Although not at the heart of our investment policies, we believe that ESG is a commitment to support our portfolio companies and we stand ready to meet the requirements of SFDR and move our portfolio companies towards a more sustainable economy.

Naxicap is commited to being a responsible player. In this context, we cannot ignore the environmental impact of our actions and business practices. Balance and transparency in governance are likely to reduce risks. Fair social conditions, dialogue with partners, suppliers, customers, are important factors for the long-term efficiency of organisations. The SFDR law will allow us to specify these commitments and to standardize publications provided to our investors. We believe that regular communication between private equity players will lead to greater discipline and a commitment to sustainability.
