ESG risk Policy
Sustainability risk generally refers to an environmental, social or governance (“ESG”) event or condition that, if it occurs could cause an actual or a potential negative impact on the value of an investment. Sustainability risk can either represent a risk on its own or have an impact on other “traditional” risk types such as market, liquidity, credit or operational risk.
However, understanding ESG factors, such as the physical effects of climate change, the transition in business models to a more sustainable economy or changing governance and social norms does not only help to identify risks but also to identify opportunities.
As such, at CBP Quilvest investment decisions and recommendations are made taking into account sustainability risk.
The aim of including sustainability risks in the investment decision is to identify the occurrence of these risks as early as possible and to take appropriate measures to minimize the impact on the investment and the overall portfolio.
