Dale Capital Group has an undisputed reputation for honesty and quality, and lives an operating philosophy based around responsible Environmental, Social and Governance (‘ESG’) investing as adapted to the African environment.
Environmental criteria look at a company’s energy use, waste, pollution, natural resource conservation and animal treatment. They also evaluate which environmental risks might affect a company’s income and how the company is managing those risks. For example, a company might face environmental risks related to its ownership of contaminated land, an oil spill it was responsible for, its disposal of hazardous waste, its management of toxic emissions or its compliance with the government’s environmental regulations.
Social criteria look at the company’s business relationships. Does it work with suppliers that hold the same values that the company itself claims to hold? Does the company donate a percentage of its profits to the community or perform volunteer work? Do the company’s working conditions show a high regard for its employees’ health and safety? Are stakeholders’ interests taken into consideration?
With regard to Governance, we want to know that a company uses accurate and transparent accounting methods across all subsidiaries, that board decisions are open and transparent, that independent Chairmen and board executives are regularly used to avoid conflicts of interest, and to avoid investments in companies that engage in illegal behaviour or use political contributions to obtain favourable treatment.
By investing in well-chosen projects in the fast growing African market, we want to help drive the emergence of Africa as a rising continent in the global environment.
