Sustainability

Sustainability

We believe sustainability is about business resilience.


We believe superior risk-adjusted returns can be achieved by investing where sustainability drivers are already in place or we can add ESG value.


ESG analysis is incorporated through the investment process, from Screening and Due Diligence to Monitoring, Reporting and Exit.


Pala is a carbon neutral firm as of 2020 (Scope 1, 2 & 3 emissions) and remains committed to a carbon neutral strategy going forward.


Pala Investments is a signatory to the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).

Community

At Pala, we believe our role as an asset owner and investor goes beyond sustainability analysis in our investment decisions.


We donate, individually and as a firm, to organizations and groups that support local communities where we invest around the world, whether providing immediate relief or long-term educational and well-being programs. We work with selected portfolio companies to understand local needs and identify local community programs and charities, though the organizations selected for support is a decision made by Pala.


Some recent examples include:
