Committed To Responsible Investment

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issues can influence investment risk and portfolio performance. At Dragon Capital, we therefore integrate ESG considerations into every stage of the investment process.

Investing responsibly is central to everything we do. Indeed, it is part of our company DNA.

We invest for the long term, always seeking to benefit the economy, society and environment of Vietnam and the other countries where we do business.

“Economic activity cannot be divorced from the well-being of the society that supports it.”

Dominic Scriven OBE, CEO

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Policy

At Dragon Capital, our rigorous ESG policy ensures that all assets we manage are never placed in companies that violate local and international standards for working conditions, arms control, environmental protection, indigenous rights and community safety.

Our clients, many of whom are leading global institutions, demand the highest ESG standards. We greatly value these relationships that have made us who we are today, and will do our utmost to meet their environmental, social and governance expectations.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Policy

We are committed to Vietnam for the long-term. Its interests are the same as ours. We will strive to positively influence Vietnam’s future, not just by helping its capital markets develop, but also by nurturing local talent and volunteering our time to worthy causes.

Our comprehensive CSR strategy is guided by four strategic pillars: Economic Development, Environment, Society and Governance.

The Four Pillars that Guide our Responsible Investing

Dragon Capital believes that an effective ESG and CSR strategy must combine many factors. We therefore focus our efforts on four key pillars: Economic Development – contributing to sustainable financial development by working closely with business partners, regulators and government; Environmental – minimising the environmental impact of our investments while promoting sustainable growth; Social – improving the way people live with a focus on youth and education; Governance – to meet and exceed our regulatory, legal and ethical responsibilities.
