Consideration of Principal Adverse Impacts
BaltCap recognises that sustainability factors can have both a direct and indirect impact on the return and cost structure of investments. We strive to integrate sustainability considerations into our core business to create a strong culture that promotes environmentally and socially responsible practices at both BaltCap and our portfolio companies.
BaltCap does not currently consider the adverse impacts of our investment decisions on sustainability factors as defined by Article 4 of the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR). We do, in our view, currently not have the means to obtain or measure all the data that would need to be reported under the SFDR, or to do so systematically, consistently and at a reasonable cost across all of our funds portfolios. This is partly because small and medium size companies are generally not required to report this data and may not currently do so. We will continue to monitor the situation and will re-evaluate our approach whenever more data becomes available. As soon as we start considering adverse sustainability impacts of our investment decisions on sustainability factors, we shall disclose the relevant information to investors and on our website.
