Responsible Investment Policy

Nordic Capital believes that attention to Environmental, Social and Governance ("ESG") matters is a prerequisite for long-term value creation. Nordic Capital always aims to invest responsibly as it executes its investment strategy.

As reflected in its mission statement, Nordic Capital provides superior investment returns to its investors while upholding the highest standards of integrity and acting in a way that enhances the reputation of the industry.

We set clear expectations for our portfolio companies with regard to ESG matters and support our portfolio companies by providing guidance and tools to help them meet our expectations.

The general partners of the Nordic Capital funds have adopted the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact. Nordic Capital encourages the boards of directors of its portfolio companies to consider these principles when developing their ESG strategies.

Nordic Capital also supports the United Nations Principles of Responsible Investment ("UNPRI") and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development ("OECD") Principles of Corporate Governance.

In addition to the specific principles set forth in this RI Policy, Nordic Capital aims to align with relevant national and international conventions and standards. We are committed to following the standards of the European Venture Capital Association ("EVCA"), the Swedish Venture Capital Association and other organisations to which we are a member or signatory. Nordic Capital supports and acts in accordance with EVCA's Handbook of Professional Standards and the International Private Equity and Venture Capital Valuation and Reporting Guidelines, both of which are an integral part of the EVCA Handbook.
