SVCA Empowering Sustainable Growth 2019 Campaign

February 01, 2019

 

Gary Ng, SVCA’s vice-chairman kicked off the New Year with the announcement of ESG 2019, SVCA’s key initiative for the year at our recent New Year Celebratory Drinks.

 

SVCA’s focus on Environment, Social and Governance (ESG) values, underscored by the green logo and tagline “Empowering Sustainable Growth 2019” is directly in line with the recognition and demand from stakeholders to include ESG considerations throughout the investment process. Key initiatives and events have been planned to further equip and align the efforts of our members.

 

SVCA is supporting ILPA and Cambridge Associates in their promotion of the gender-neutral term “key person” in all legal documents on a forward-looking basis (Click here to read more).  SVCA will also be partnering with the International Finance Corporation on a forum to discuss issues related to gender diversity for the PE/VC industry.

 

Workshops and a conference centered on developing and application of  ESG principles and frameworks for PE/VC investments are being planned for the rest of the year. Do keep a lookout for these exciting events.

 

SVCA is also planning to publish case studies of fund managers and portfolio that exhibit strong ESG values and invite all members to actively contribute by filling in the form below and sending it to research@svca.org.sg
