Importance of Responsible Investment

Responsible Investment

Responsible investment is catching worldwide attention because the public acknowledges that the economy depends on the environment, society, and effective governance. Hence, starting responsible investment as early as possible helps companies gain industry competitiveness and reputations.

GreenCo believes that responsible investment is fundamental for long-term prosperity and early players in responsible investment can develop business advantages. Thus, we are dedicated to utilising our expertise to help funds enhance their approaches, strategies, practices, and governance to adopt responsive investment in their operations. Recently, GreenCo has assisted a venture capital fund in enhancing its ESG investment policy to cover broader aspects of responsible investment. Recognising profile selection, due diligence and continuous monitoring are fundamental for the fund’s responsible investment commitment, GreenCo has also developed a screening tool for the fund to assess whether investee companies fulfil the ESG expectations and align with its visions.

GreenCo’s Comprehensive ESG Services

GreenCo provides a range of services to help funds uphold the concept of responsible investment, covering the formulation of responsible investment policy, the optimisation of investment approaches/strategies, as well as the development of systematic tools to monitor and track investee companies’ ESG performance. Reckoning that some funds may face challenges when incorporating environmental, social, and governance issues into investment decisions and asset management, GreenCo addresses their concerns through developing tailored assessment tools and providing ESG-related training to enhance their competency in identifying, assessing and managing ESG risks and opportunities in their investment.

GreenCo closely monitors the market trends and regulatory standards of responsible investment, allowing us to utilise our extensive ESG experience to guide funds to adopt responsible investment in a stepwise approach.
