Engaging With Companies

Engaging with African Companies

Sustainable Capital aims to positively influence company behaviour and improve sustainability practices through its targeted company engagement and its capital allocation decisions.

The primary objective of our engagement is to enhance long-term, risk-adjusted returns for our investors by collaborating with management to improve the sustainability of a target company's core business operations.

This is achieved either by reducing risk (as measured by the implied discount rate) or by improving the company's ability to generate free cash flows.

Sustainable Capital engage with companies through:

  • Proxy voting i.e. voting at shareholders general assembly based on Sustainable Capital's proxy voting policy
  • Collaborative engagement e.g. Sustainable Capital support the "Carbon disclosure Project"
  • Targeted constructive active engagement with individual companies
