Sustainability is central to our investment philosophy.
At Ember, we believe the sustainability characteristics of our investments contributes to their long-term viability and growth potential—impact and returns align. Just as we track operating and financial progress, we measure, report and strive to improve upon the positive impact our investments have on society and the environment.
We do not seek gains at the expense of future generations.
Ember seeks to invest in businesses based on the strength of their strategy, talent of their team and ability to meet the needs of their stakeholders.
We believe that businesses with robust commitments to Environmental, Social and Governance principles are best positioned to succeed amidst a rapidly evolving market and regulatory landscape.
Ember has developed a methodical approach to identifying, managing, reporting and improving upon ESG-related risks and opportunities, aligned with internationally-accepted industry standards.
Implementing this framework for diligence and oversight enables each of our partner portfolio companies to develop a track record of compliance and excellence, which we believe increases their value.
