Sparring Capital believes that value creation, which is the core mission of a private equity investor, makes sense only if conducted in the framework of a responsible investment policy (Corporate Social Responsibility). Therefore, our investments are part of a long-term value creation programme which integrates Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) criteria.

Our organisational structure fosters the adoption of an Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) approach within both Sparring Capital and the companies we support.

Sparring Capital thus has a Corporate Social Responsibility manager who coordinates the actions and reflections of the management company on these aspects and ensures that ESG principles are applied at management level with a consistent approach across the portfolio of companies.

For each of our investments, we systematically conduct an ESG audit in order to identify areas of improvement and positive impacts for companies and their stakeholders. The implementation of the measures identified is regularly monitored and the results analysed.

Sparring Capital is a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) since early 2010. This United Nations-led initiative aims to encourage the adoption of best ESG practices by investment professionals.

Sparring Capital is also a signatory to the France Invest Charter for Capital Investors.
