ESG compliance is becoming an imperative for investment activities in western countries . We facilitate the according standards and implement ESG-integration to our investments. We reckon increasement of ESG performance as a process applicable also to our investments and business partnerships in emerging markets. In Eurasia, the level of ESG responsibility may lay behind the EU average yet, though we see a growing willingness to make substantial improvements. In addition to our fund’s investment activities, Creon Capital provides consulting services to decision-makers, seeking to improve their ESG policy. This includes strategic management advisory, our assistance in issuing green bonds in Luxembourg, value and appraisal work in difficult markets, and financial structuring solutions.
