Gradiente SGR Sustainability policy in compliance with Regulation (EU) 2019/2088
In order to adapt to the guidelines for responsible investing, Gradiente has adopted a methodology that takes into account Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues for itself and for the selection and management of Investee Companies.
One reason is the belief that by adopting an ESG approach it is possible to achieve better growth, cost savings and better profitability with regard to long-term returns than a traditional approach and, at the same time, increase our reputation and strengthen relations with stakeholders. Gradiente SGR, therefore, through the management of investment funds and target companies, aims to associate the adoption of responsible finance principles to the maximization of returns. All this is possible thanks to the integration of traditional financial analysis tools with environmental, social and good governance ones, during the investment evaluation process as well as during the holding period of portfolio companies.
Gradiente SGR does not currently take into account the negative effects of investment decisions on sustainability factors in the meaning provided by art. 4, paragraph 1, of Regulation (EU) 2019/2088.
Following the adoption and entry into force of the regulatory technical standards and following the clarification of the interpretative issues, Gradiente SGR will reconsider its position and make the related updates.
