Lifeline Ventures invests responsibly. We follow our responsible investment policy which means that not only economic aspects, but also environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues/opportunities as well as sustainability risks/opportunities are taken into consideration in investment decisions, due diligence and ownership activities. No investments are made if a potential portfolio company fails to meet the requirements of Lifeline Ventures’ responsible investment policy and there is no plan on how to address the ESG issues and sustainability risks. Where appropriate or deemed necessary, external advisors will be used for additional due diligence relating to ESG and sustainability risks. The evaluation of ESG and sustainability risks/opportunities is done on case-by-case basis and we focus on the matters that are relevant to the potential portfolio company and its operating environment. Sustainability risks mean environmental, social or governance events or conditions that, if they occur, could cause an actual or a potential material negative impact on the value of the investment.
Lifeline Ventures will not make any investments in companies focusing on any of the following: tobacco, nuclear energy, pornography, arms industry or arms trading, animal or human cloning, or gambling industry. In addition, we will not invest in companies or founders which we determine to operate unethically. We see ESG-related opportunities as a potential source of competitive advantage for a portfolio company and thus they have a positive impact on the investment decision.
Lifeline Ventures does not currently consider adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors within the meaning of Article 4(1)(a) of the EU Regulation 2019/2088 on sustainability‐related disclosures in the financial services sector. We act in accordance with the Article 4(1)(b) of the EU Regulation in question for the time being as there is uncertainty surrounding the content of the obligation set out in Article 4(1)(a) and because our adverse impact is likely to be very small or not measurable taking into account the size, the nature and scale of our activities and the types of financial products we make available. Lifeline Ventures intends to consider such adverse impacts when further information on the requirements is available.
