20-03-2017. Mediterrania Capital Partners, the regional Private Equity firm focusing on growth investments for companies in North African and Sub-Saharan countries, announces that it has become a signatory of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI).
UNPRI is an international network of investors working together to put the six Principles for Responsible Investment into practice. The Principles, which are voluntary, include actions for incorporating environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues into investment practices across asset classes.
“For Mediterrania Capital Partners value creation goes beyond the financial and operational aspects of the investee company. It also involves improving the ESG factors of a business, thereby focusing on both the internal policies and the external impact of an organisation. Through our investments we strive to deliver strong financial returns while creating positive outcomes for communities and for the environment”, said Albert Alsina, CEO and Managing Partner at Mediterrania Capital Partners.
Daniel Viñas, Partner at Mediterrania Capital Partners, heads ESG across the investor’s portfolio. Daniel is supported by Rajaa Berrkia, Operations Director at Mediterrania Capital, and Shaban Sidratu Jah, Operations Manager in charge of ESG matters.
UNPRI’s goal is to understand the implications of sustainability for investors and support signatories to incorporate these issues into their investment decision making and ownership practices. In implementing the Principles, signatories contribute to the development of a more sustainable global financial system.
