  • Commitment to integrity and transparency
  • Dedicated impact verification and management
  • Leveraging the platform to access best impact opportunities

We believe that private equity is well-suited to drive lasting, scalable impact by supporting sustainable solutions to critical social and environmental challenges. The resources made available by governments and philanthropy will not be sufficient, and institutional capital is well-positioned to bridge the gap and address these global problems. LGT Capital Partners has long recognized this need and has been an early adopter of responsible and sustainable investing. Our dedicated impact strategy was launched under the commitment to allocate the capital we have been entrusted with to make a difference in the lives of the global community and to leave a healthier planet for future generations. 

Our impact investing practice is rooted in over a decade of impact and sustainable investing leadership, and adheres to industry best practices for impact verification and impact management. Our proprietary Impact Management Framework and the associated assessment tools are aligned with the Impact Management Project and the International Finance Corporation’s Operating Principles for Impact Management. Impact is mapped to the appropriate United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and targets, and is monitored and reported on over time.

LGT Capital Partners’ impact investments leverage the capabilities and the global network of our investment platform as well as over 20 years of successful private equity investing experience. This allows us to secure differentiated access to high quality private equity opportunities which deliver attractive risk-adjusted performance.
