As a signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investments (UNPRI) as well as the Principles for Responsible Investment in Farmland, which were incorporated into the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in August 2014, we are committed to fulfilling the environmental, social and corporate governance principles set out
below.

Aquila Capital:

  • incorporates ESG considerations into our investment analysisand decision-making processes
  • takes ESG issues into consideration in our policies and practices
  • seeks appropriate disclosure on ESG issues in our target investments
  • promotes acceptance and implementation of these principles within the investment community

We are also a member of the United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative (UNEP FI), which was founded in 1992 due to a growing recognition of the links between finance and ESG challenges and the role financial institutions could play for a more sustainable world.

As well as signing the above-mentioned principles, we have developed our own set of asset-class specific ethical principles that we adhere to throughout the entire investment process.
