Past Impact Reports

Environmental, Social & Governance Policy

As a responsible impact fund manager, Aavishkaar Capital believes that Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors will impact the performance of its Fund and portfolio companies. We believe that along with our strong Impact agenda, a robust ESG framework will form a foundation of our long-term growth and profitability. We therefore will not invest in companies whose activities fall under the Aavishkaar Fund Exclusion List and incorporate all the applicable international and national ESG standards in our investment analysis and decision-making processes of our portfolio companies.
