Responsible Investing


Grounded in a responsibility to be prudent stewards of capital, Navegar believes that environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles are critical to building strong, resilient companies that deliver long-term stakeholder value and driving better overall outcomes for our investments, the environment, and society at large. Since our firm’s inception, we have been committed to integrating ESG considerations into our investment process and operating philosophy.


Once we intend to invest in a company, we use internationally-recognized tools and processes to conduct full due diligence and identify relevant ESG-related risks and opportunities. As an integrated component of our investment thesis, we build a consensus with other stakeholders around applicable ESG enhancements for each portfolio company.

We then partner with the portfolio company to address relevant issues, embed sustainable best practices, and advance ESG-focused initiatives that improve ESG performance over time. These include appointing ESG officers at the portfolio company, defining industry-relevant objectives, and establishing monitoring and accountability measures, among others. As we understand ESG’s relation to risk mitigation and operational excellence, these activities are a standard part of each portfolio company’s value creation plan.
