At Qualitas Funds, we believe that corporate social responsibility (CSR) policy is a fundamental part of any organisation.
Its proper implementation within our own working philosophy, as well as its consistency with the funds in which we invest, sets the tone for our commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) concerns. Qualitas Funds manages its clients’ equity in a responsible manner, firmly committed to a philosophy that generates greater social impact and higher long term financial returns.
Our ESG policy is designed on the basis of the principles defined by PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment).
At Qualitas Funds we strive to offer our investors attractive returns while maintaining a deep sense of professional and social commitment.
Commitment to climate change
At Qualitas Funds, we are committed to using our resources responsibly to support the long-term sustainability of our company and our environment. Our sustainability efforts are aimed at reducing energy consumption and carbon footprint, as well as promoting and investing in businesses that help fight against climate change.
Climate change is a global emergency that goes beyond national borders. It is an issue that requires coordinated solutions at all levels and international cooperation to help countries move toward a low-carbon economy. The Paris Agreement sets out a global framework to avoid dangerous climate change by limiting global warming to well below 2°C and pursuing efforts to limit it to 1.5°C. Qualitas Funds supports the Paris Agreement and concentrates its efforts to minimize carbon emissions both in its investments and in its offices.
Commitment to Human Capital
We emphasize promoting an open culture that encourages inclusion, diversity, and personal development, both in our company and in the companies in which we invest. We believe that our activity has an impact on our society, and we want to ensure that this spirit of responsibility impregnates all levels of our business, establishing corporate and individual objectives specifically in the area of professional and personal development.
Commitment to Corporate Responsibility
Corporate responsibility is fully integrated into Qualitas Funds and is reflected in all its activity and in each of the decisions taken. Social, environmental, and corporate governance issues are not only the focus of Qualitas Funds, but also of the companies in which the management company invests.
Qualitas Funds manages its clients’ capital in a responsible manner, firmly committed with a philosophy that generates a greater social impact and higher financial returns in the long term.
Qualitas Funds became a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment, a United Nations initiative created in 2006 by an international network of institutional investors whose main objective is to implement the six Principles for Responsible Investment and to help signatories integrate these issues into investment and corporate governance decisions. They currently have over 1,400 signatories from more than 50 countries representing assets worth USD 60 billion.
