Environment, Social and Governance Responsibility
Our investors aim to get high returns from the capital we invest. Since our creation, we have incurred non financial criteria such as environmental, social and governance items in our investment decisions and practices as shareholders. We are convinced that a responsible approach to investment participates to value creation.
Cobalt Capital has elaborated la Charte d’Investissement Responsable of Cobalt Capital to show its commitment to implement ESG principles for responsible investment. We have set up practical tools which vary in relevance across our businesses and the markets in which they operate. Each investee company has designated an individual with suitable authority to ensure responsibility for implementing and reporting on these ESG criteria. We consider these matters at board level on a periodic basis.
At Cobalt, we feel we have a responsibility to sponsor charities and projects which support wider community intiatives. For a number of years, we have chosen to support the following institutions:
- Fondation Latran, medical research for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)
- Collège des Bernardins, spiritual and intellectual dialogue
- Réseau Paris Entreprendre, start-up and entrepreneurial projects
