We believe that environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) issues can have a material impact on financial performance and the communities in which both Synova and our portfolio companies operate. We are committed to a responsible investment programme and seek to maintain best practice across our firm and throughout our portfolio companies.

Synova is a signatory to the UN PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment) which were developed by an international group of institutional investors to reflect the increasing relevance of ESG issues to investment practices. In developing our policies, we have also given consideration to a range of other codes and standards, including The British Private Equity & Venture Capital Association’s Responsible Investment guide for members.
