What does a FinTech like Innovestment have to do with sustainability?
Well, we think a lot:
sustainability is not a trend topic for us, but an expression of our corporate philosophy and our respect for people, society and the environment,
we feel it is our personal and corporate responsibility to take a long-term view of our actions and to focus clearly on their effects,
to think about what we ourselves can contribute to make the world a better place, and
to treat the people in our environment in a fair and respectful manner
In short: Corporate Social Responsibility means for us to practice economic, ecological and social sustainability.
The orientation towards the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations form the basis for our own activities and for the demands we place on our projects. For us, this does not primarily mean an economic advantage, but corresponds to our ethical demand for a fair and equal society, which is characterized by value-creating cooperation between its participants. We have compiled a summary of all SDG for you below. You can also find more information on the pages of the United Nations.

People want to know whether and to what extent the companies in which they invest take sustainability into account. Many people explicitly want to support projects that meet at least one of the sustainability goals. We agree with this:
We also apply the sustainability goals to which we commit ourselves when selecting our projects and partners. Already in the first phase of establishing contact, we identify the potentials and stimulate the implementation of the SDG during the cooperation. In order to make the goals visible to our investors, we work with the official SDG symbols of the United Nations in the project profiles.
