Our CSR Policy
Our CSR policy is about how Kartesia takes account of its economic, social and environmental impact in the way it operates as a business. By demonstrating our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility, we aim to align our business values, purpose and strategy with the needs of our Limited Partners, whilst embedding such responsible and ethical principles into everything we do.
UN PRI Signatory
We are signatories to the UN Principles for Responsible Investing (“RI”) since 2014 and have embedded RI policies in our investment philosophy and in our portfolio company review processes. We report to the UN Principles for Responsible Investing annually and collaborated to their report Spotlight on Responsible Investment in Private Debt published in 2019.
Kartesia Going Green Initiative
We take consideration of environmental issues in the professional services we provide and endeavour to reduce our environmental impact to an absolute minimum. All the employees will ensure that the Company reduces its environmental impact by following the Kartesia Going Green initiative. Kartesia is a carbon neutral company since 2018.
Our CSR team
We have dedicated staff with a real commitment to ESG, which translates into having a real influence and commitment to the issue. Damien Scaillierez is the Managing Partner in charge of ESG. All the employees have an ESG annual training given by our Head of CSR & ESG, Coralie De Maesschalck.
We are proud of our team commitment to community services and support of non-profit organizations. Key elements of our citizenship initiatives include the annual Kartesia Volunteering Day and donations to projects benefiting underprivileged children.
Kartesia For Women Initiative
We launched the Kartesia for Women initiative in 2020. The objective is to facilitate the sharing of insights and experience amongst our female employees. Also, we aim at inspiring women to join the private debt industry, particularly in investment roles.
