Adverse Sustainability Impacts Statement

“No consideration of adverse impacts on sustainability factors”

Currently, Vendep Capital does not consider adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors. The burden associated with considering adverse impacts on sustainability factors is disproportionate considering the very limited relevance that such impacts could have in the context of Vendep Capital’s investment strategy, as the Venture Capital funds managed by Vendep Capital invest in early-stage software companies in the Nordics and Baltics. Within the software economy, we do not expect adverse impacts on sustainability factors to occur regularly. Moreover, given that the SFDR and the accompanying Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) are new legislative acts, there is very little practical experience or practice regarding applying their respective provisions.
