RiverRock and Sustainable Investing
RiverRock’s investment process integrates Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) aspects of a transaction from origination to execution and monitoring. We view ESG factors as material to the success of our transactions. The firm’s ESG policy, including an Exclusion List, primarily based on those identified by the IFC, governs our work. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a shared groupwide strategy which we commit to measure and map alongside specific KPIs.
The PRI believes that an economically efficient, sustainable global financial system is a necessity for long-term value creation. Such a system will reward long-term, responsible investment and benefit the environment and society as a whole. The PRI works to achieve this sustainable global financial system by encouraging adoption of the Principles and collaboration on their implementation; by fostering good governance, integrity, and accountability; and by addressing obstacles to a sustainable financial system that lie within market practices, structures, and regulation.
