Our commitment to sustainability is as unwavering as the day Amal Capital was founded. At Amal Capital, we have always considered sustainability to be a business driver that ultimately builds stronger, more sustainable, and profitable businesses.
This thinking is particularly relevant in the markets in which we invest and operate. We recognize that effectively embedding sustainability considerations into our investment process will both protect value and enhance the long-term returns for our businesses, our stakeholders and shareholders.
Sustainability has been one of the cornerstones of our investment strategy. We believe that sustainability and strong performance go hand-in-hand. This approach has been validated by the economic value we have helped our partner companies create, the returns we have generated for our investors, and the positive social impact that has been created in our communities.
At Amal Capital, we integrate environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into financial analysis and decision-making to better manage risk and generate long-term value. We have developed a set of guiding Business Principles to ensure that ESG practices are integrated throughout the investment process from investment identification and due diligence through to exit.
At the core of this is our ESG Management System (MS) which houses the Group’s ESG Business Principles. Simply put, our guiding principles can be captured as:
As alternative asset managers in growth markets, we are ideally placed to drive the integration of sustainability into our partner companies. Towards this end, and through our partnership approach, the investment teams work with partner companies during each stage of the investment cycle to meet applicable ESG requirements and identify value add opportunities to build strong, sustainable businesses.
Amal Capital is committed to supporting and driving sustainable thinking and practices in our industry. A key element is our engagement with a wide range of industry partners and thought leaders to further promote the long-term relevance of sustainability in the private sector.
