Sustainability-related disclosures


Introduction to Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation

On 10 March 2021, the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (Regulation 2019/2088) (‘SFDR’) entered into force. This regulation requires all alternative investment fund managers to publicly disclose on their website:

  • their sustainability approaches
  • the sustainability profiles of all of their managed funds that are marketed after 10 March 2021

Below you can find these two regulatory disclosures.

Sustainability profile of funds

CI-IV, CI-ETF I, CI-GCF I and CI-ABF I are funds managed by CIP that have been marketed after 10 March 2021.

Under the SFDR, funds can be generally classified in three ways:

  • Article 6 funds, which do not have any sustainable or ESG element or strategy
  • Article 8 funds, which promote, among other characteristics, environmental or social characteristics (“light green” funds)
  • Article 9 funds, which have, as their objective, investments in economic activities that contribute to environmental or social objectives (“dark green” funds)

On the basis that they are financially focused funds with an objective to invest in economic activities that contribute to an environmental objective, CI-IV, CI-ETF I, CI-GCF I and CI-ABF I are currently assessed as Article 9 (“dark green”) funds.

Human Practice Foundation

CIP provides financial support to the Danish charity foundation Human Practice Foundation, which focuses on improving education and developing social entrepreneurships in the poorest areas in the world. The organization’s vision is to allocate and utilize resources and create real, measurable growth and sustainable development for the funds received, and to give children in developing countries the possibility to lift themselves out of poverty.

In March 2018 CIP participated in the inauguration of the Saraswati Sikaicha Secondary School in Taplejung, Nepal – a project where CIP has contributed financially to the construction of the school building and various equipment.
