Strong heritage. Sustainable progress. At VP Capital, we commit our capital and network towards sustainable progress for generations to come. We do this because we see the need, feel the responsibility and believe in the opportunities of future proof thinking. We want to contribute to solutions that are needed both on a planetary and societal level.
We continuously assess the negative impacts or effects and how we can reduce them through our companies, investments, donations, innovations, as well as the positive impact of our portfolio and how we can increase them. We approach this with a down-to-earth yet ambitious mindset.
How we create shared value
The value creation model provides a visual representation of how an organization adds value to its stakeholders and society at large. At the heart of our value creation model is our sustainability strategy, built around our vision, mission, and family core values. We strategically deploy our capital, both financial and non-financial, to create value for our stakeholders: our shareholders, employees, participations, network, society, and the environment. These results bring about impact in the form of solutions to planetary and social challenges, the growth of impactful companies and ecosystems, and the acceleration of positive change by inspiring others.
