ESG and the impact from our investments

It is inherent to the type of companies that Qbic is funding that them being successful will positively impact the world. We are proud to partner with our knowledge partners and their research labs to valorize cutting-edge research and build impactful companies with sustainability as a core common denominator.

Qbic's investment process takes Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) risk factors into account and how the target company's activities align with and impact the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Our effort does not stop at the time of investment, rather we will actively work with management throughout our journey together to monitor and improve our portfolio companies' ESG rating, as we believe this to be an important long-term value creation axis for our companies.

To formalize our commitment to responsible investment, Qbic became a UN PRI signatory.
