Integrated ESG Impact Program


The Sylvan Group is a private investment firm with an integrated ESG Impact Program (“EIP”) We formally incorporate ESG factors into its investment process and employ a specialist ESG & Impact, ‘Impact Square, which is involved from deal origination all the way to exit



The Sylvan Group defines impact investment opportunities by UN Sustainable Development Goals and evaluate the impact by IMP five dimensions (What, Who, How much, Contribution, Risk)



We manage the impact of an investment by taking into account the positive and negative impacts of the underlying enterprises/assets, as well as our own contribution.

• We choose enterprises thatact to avoid harm to their stakeholders, for example decreasing their carbon footprint or paying an appropriate wage; such ‘responsible’ enterprises can also mitigate reputational or operational risk (often referred to as ESG risk management)

• We also favor enterprises that activelybenefit stakeholders, for example proactively upskilling their employees, or selling products that support good health or educational outcomes; an increasing range of these ‘sustainable’ enterprises are doing so in pursuit of financial outperformance over the long term (often referred to as pursuing ESG opportunities).

• We invest in enterprises that are using their full capabilities to contribute to solutions to pressing social or environmental problems, such as enabling an otherwise underserved population to achieve good health or educational outcomes or hiring and upskilling individuals who were formerly long-term unemployed.
