Responsible investing

We are a responsible investor. Helping companies achieve good standards of governance, along with strong environmental and social (ES) performance, is an important part of how we add value to the businesses in which our capital is invested.

“Working with responsible businesses and supporting the evolution of better social, environmental and business integrity practices is central to CDC’s mandate as a patient investor – whether that is through improving labour practices in textile supply chains, energy efficiency in real estate or business integrity in infrastructure projects…”
