Sustainable Investments

We incorporate environmental, social and governance (ESG) policies throughout our investment process and asset management. We engage positively with relevant stakeholders. 

Our investments support climate change mitigation, the promotion of circular economy, and the replacement of fossil and virgin raw materials. In addition, our investments employ locals and promote the manufacturing industry's sustainability transition.


EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation

Taaleri Private Equity Funds Management is covered by the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation. This regulation introduces greater transparency and access to information on sustainability for investors.

The funds contribute to the attainment of sustainability objectives through investing in activities that, e.g. replace the use of fossil and virgin raw materials or use less of harmful or polluting chemicals. Thus the investments support climate change mitigation, pollution prevention and control, and circular economy.
