Sustainable Advantage

Sustainable Advantage

At the heart of finnCap Group, our purpose is to help companies on their growth journeys. With that in mind, we understand that every business does not exist simply to benefit its shareholders, but also drives innovation, social and environmental impact and economic prosperity. We believe doing the right thing is good business and can create real sustainable advantage – delivering competitive financial returns, while also delivering positive environmental and societal outcomes.

Helping companies report on ESG

Commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns has shifted from being simply a way to signal a company’s caring credentials, to being a fundamental part of sustainable business success. These credentials are vitally important to shareholders, to investors, to customers, clients and colleagues alike.

To help companies begin to identify and report ESG credentials, finnCap has developed an ESG scorecard, helping them navigate complex reporting requirements and build a better picture of their ESG performance. By being transparent, SMEs can present a comprehensive and compelling sustainability and value story – they can clearly demonstrate sustainable advantage.

Investors are a key driver of change

Investors, both institutional and retail, are playing a prominent role in putting ESG at the top of corporate agendas. Across the developed world an intergenerational wealth transfer is happening on an unprecedented scale. In the UK, for example, £5.5tn is estimated to be passed down over the next 30 years. The main beneficiaries – Millennials and Generation Z – are making ESG central to their investment approach, and they want to invest in companies that reflect their values and that positively impact the planet and society.
