HADEN VENTURES FUND MANAGER DISCLOSURES
IN LINE WITH THE SUSTAINABLE FINANCE DISCLOSURES REGULATION (SFDR)
Being an active investor, Hadean Ventures’ primary task is to secure the long-term competitiveness of the investees, implying a strong ESG-focus. In accordance with Hadean Ventures ESG Policy, Hadean Ventures actively assess and integrates social and environmental sustainability risks in the investment due diligence, decision‐making processes, and the portfolio management.
Article 4. 1
Hadean Ventures has identified a number of relevant sustainability areas with potential of great positive influence on the investees, such as, but not limited to, climate change combat, gender equality and diversity, waste and wastewater treatment, quality education, decent work, innovation fostering, and responsible production and consumption. Adverse sustainability impacts are mapped through Hadean’s: ESG Compliance check list prior to the investment decision, yearly ESG follow-up questionnaire and yearly ESG Focus projects aiming to highlight a chosen ESG topic.
In general, the nature of the investees (early-stage R&D companies within health care and life science, with no/limited production, registered and operating within the well-regulated countries in the Western hemisphere, mainly the Nordics) has a quite limited adverse sustainability impact potential. However, hazardous waste is identified as the principal adverse sustainability environmental impact and the gender balance is identified as the adverse sustainability impact within social matters. The assessment of the adverse impacts is made based on indicators laid down in the Regulatory Technical Standards and Hadean’s additional sustainability KPIs.
Article 4. 2
Being an active investor, Hadean seeks to influence and increase the investees’ sustainability focus through the board participation, yearly mapping of sustainability indicator development, general awareness raising on the importance of the sustainability and the development of relevant policies and procedures.
Hadean Ventures 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.
Hadean Ventures’ remuneration practice does not encourage risk taking on sustainability aspects.
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).
