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.
Dragon Capital supports new Chair in Biodiversity Economics at University of Exeter
Dragon Capital announced in July 2019 the creation of the “Dragon Capital Chair in Biodiversity Economics” at the University of Exeter. Over five years, Dragon Capital and the University of Exeter will together commit £1.6 million to fund the new position which will look to address the central question of whether there is any correlation between biodiversity and the success of the economy and whether individuals and organisations can, and should, place an economic value on biodiversity.
Our path towards sustainable development
We determine our long term CSR strategy through focusing on four strategic pillars:
We are a signatory to ACGA, an independent organisation dedicated to implementing effective corporate governance practices throughout Asia. ACGA believes that good governance is fundamental to the region’s economies and capital markets.
We are a signatory to PRI, the world’s leading proponent of responsible investing – and fully commit to its six principles. PRI champions the view that an economically efficient, sustainable financial system will benefit the environment and society as a whole.
We are a member of IIGCC. IIGCC provides investors with a collaborative platform to encourage public policies, investment practices, and corporate behaviour that address long-term risks and opportunities associated wih climate change.
