There are many innovations among our companies that pursue a positive impact or that could reduce negative impact.
We notice that portfolio companies are open to this, but sometimes they cannot spend enough time and capital on innovations. We want to support these companies to complete innovations that can contribute to sustainable progress through:
- Surrounding companies with knowledge partners
- Investing in innovative start-ups and funds
- Being a launching partner for innovations that improve impact with portfolio companies
Investing in innovations is an important part of our sustainability policy. Innovations often require resources to test their invention on a large scale or to build test factories. We want to build up an innovation portfolio within our existing investment domains. For this we want to collaborate with parties that are working on innovation such as universities and start-ups.
