As privileged stewards of capital, LongueVue Capital ("LVC") recognizes its unique opportunity to help build, support, and invest in people, communities, businesses, and the environment. LVC believes a sustainability mindset reduces overall risk, sparks innovation, reveals opportunities, and creates positive change all of which drives business value.
LVC is committed to supporting efforts by governing sustainability factors in our portfolio companies. We aim to generate attractive returns for our investors while investing in companies and management teams that are accountable for their social and environmental impact.
Whether just beginning a sustainability journey or well along, each company joins the LVC sustainability program upon investment. The LVC program helps each company embed sustainability into the business through a continuous feed of recurring educational opportunities, speakers and events throughout the year and lifetime of the investment.
We are excited to chart an evolving, increasingly sustainable course to drive value for LVC and our portfolio companies. A course with sustainability entrenched in every step of the investment process: diligence, investment and at exit.
LVC honors a holistic approach to sustainability. As diligence progresses, LVC will continue to assess sustainability risk criteria by integrating sustainability discussion topics as integral parts of the due diligence process.
LVC is driven by four foundational principles to assist portfolio companies in building a sustainability program to drive long-term value: awareness, education, action, and communication.
Self-reporting throughout LVC ownership is a differentiator and better prepares companies for exit. If companies engage in the LVC program in an authentic way, the next investor’s request for sustainability information will be the company’s time to shine.
LVC recognizes our largest impact on sustainability is governance by focusing on quality of management, setting sustainability as a priority and mitigating conflicts of interest.
Our responsibility with portfolio companies is to engage in issues that are most important to their businesses and to their stakeholders. Oversight on the management of the issues will help de-risk the business and reveal opportunities for growth. We use four primary means of governance.
Our view on sustainability embodies the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which were introduced by the United Nations in 2015 with a target of achieving these goals by 2030.
