Kibo Capital Partners (KCP) makes responsible investments across its target regions and we adhere to the highest Environmental Social and Governance (ESG) standards. During the life of our investments, we strictly follow the guidelines set up by development finance leaders such as the International Finance Corporation.
ESG for KCP is therefore also core to our investment decision making process. We integrate a rigorous ESG lens at each stage of our investment process, from initial screening to exit. Through our focus on sustainable investments, we have helped to support local communities across our target regions and made our portfolio companies stronger and more competitive, which ultimately positions them better for long-term growth and further job creation.
At KCP, we seek to identify investment opportunities, reduce risk and enhance value by addressing ESG issues across the investment cycle. We actively work with our portfolio companies to create sustainable value while generating financial returns. This is achieved through sharing our knowledge and tools with these companies and providing support to them in ESG matters such as labour relations, environmental management, diversity, inclusion and good governance.
