BlueCrow perceives the integration of risks related to sustainability (commonly designated ESG risks, in reference to the environmental, social and governance facets) as of extreme importance to its ongoing activities. The ultimate objective is the creation of long term value for our investors, participants and clients, ensuring the competitiveness of the entities invested in and striving to foster a positive impact in the field of ESG.

Stemming from this concern, since 2022, BlueCrow has been a signatory to the PRI – Principles for Responsible Investment charter of the United Nations.

Taking into account the legislative framework currently in effect in terms of sustainability, especially Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 of the European Parliament and Council, of 27 November 2019, specifying the duties as regards the release of information related to the sustainability of the financial services sector (Sustainability Finance Disclosure Regulation or “SFDR” in the abbreviation as referred to hereafter) and the Delegated Regulation (EU) 2022/1288 issued by the Commission, of 6 April 2022 (“Delegated Regulation”), BlueCrow vem has published its ESG Policy. This Policy defines the ways in which environmental, social and governance risks are incorporated and integrated into our activities.

Irrespective of the integration of ESG risks into decision-making processes, especially as regards investments and investment consultancy, BlueCrow does not take into consideration the negative impacts of its investment decisions on the factors of sustainability. In accordance with the terms stipulated in art. 4, paragraph 1, subparagraph b) of the SFDR Regulation, and subsequent to that foreseen in art. 12 of the Delegated Regulation, BlueCrow explains in an autonomous declaration the reasons for which its does not consider, within the scope of its investment decisions, the negative impacts on the factors of sustainability.

Aware of the importance and evolutions in this theme, as well as their implications for Group activities, BlueCrow is committed to periodically reviewing its position on the ways the factors of sustainability are integrated into management processes.
