ESG Integration

Greencape Capital is a signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).

Greencape believes environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors are key elements of long-term value and have the potential to impact both the risk and return profile of a company. Greencape’s role as an active investor is to maximize shareholder value for its clients. However, in doing so, Greencape must investigate and understand each company’s risks and opportunities—including those relating to ESG factors. Greencape’s research efforts are firmly focussed on the sustainability of a business and the implications of this and its impact on valuation. Greencape’s investment team has fully integrated ESG into its research process, including voting proxies.

At Greencape each member of the investment team has the flexibility and resources needed to incorporate ESG factors in the way most consistent with promoting long-term financial sustainability.

While ESG implementation will vary based on the investment team’s judgment of materiality, Greencape are committed to unwavering stewardship of long-term capital.
Greencape believes its role as thoughtful stewards of client capital and its focus on business sustainability creates strong alignment of values.
