THE HADEAN IMPACT
HADEAN VENTURES HAS A STRONG COMMITMENT TO BEING A DRIVER FOR POSITIVE CHANGES IN THE SOCIETY AS A WHOLE
Responsible investing = Value creation
We contribute to increased wealth, better health and living conditions across the globe through support of research and development, and with strong focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) matters.
We are welcoming the new legal framework, the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) and the Taxonomy Regulation, linking the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Framework and Paris Agreement on Climate Change to the financial due diligence processes and investment decisions. The regulations make finance a powerful tool in creation of overall value.
We have tailored our investment due diligence process, to meet high ESG standards, and will going forward implement applicable technical standards. Through impactful positions such as board directorships we purposefully use our influence to implement ESG policies and standard operating procedures.
Hadean is proud to be a PRI Signatory, seeking to build a more sustainable financial system and to align the investors with the broader societal objectives.
Strong focus on diversity and gender equality
Our ESG policy guides us in regards to environmental, social and government factors both within our investment firm and within the companies we invest into.
We have a strong focus on diversity and gender equality, as we have identified lack of those to be a major challenge, both in the investment industry and start-up community. We work for an inclusive and diverse environment, within our firm and portfolio companies. We promote this view internally and externally, as we work for diversity and equal opportunity in recruitment processes.
We also have programs in place to help increase diversity both in start-ups and in investment roles. We are active in cross-firm, cross-border initiatives such as Level20 which we launched in the Nordics in 2019 together with several other PE-firms.
The UN Sustainability Goals we directly impact are:
The launch of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015 has made clear that the global community of countries relies heavily on the private sector to solve some of the most urgent problems the world is facing. Both, companies and institutional investors, are being asked to contribute to the SDGs through their business activities, asset allocation and investment decisions (UNPRI).
