ESG for Travel and Hospitality

Velocity Ventures actively advocates sustainable investing. We believe that responsible ownership means ensuring business success does not come with an environmental or social cost, and together with good governance, we seek to achieve this.

Environmental

Environmental criteria consider how a company performs as a steward of nature.

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions
  • Achieve carbon neutrality
  • Increase water efficiency
  • Water conservation
  • Waste minimization

Social

Social criteria examine how it manages relationships with employees, suppliers, customers, and the communities where it operates.

  • Diversity & inclusion
  • Guests and employee health and well-being
  • Youth employment
  • Human rights and fair labour practices

Governance

Governance deals with a company’s leadership, executive pay, audits, internal controls, and shareholder rights.

  • Commitment to ESG
  • Company ethics
  • Decision-making and strategic oversight
  • Disclosure and transparency
  • Clear and fair ownership structures
  • Governance of stakeholder engagement

We recognize the potential impact of its companies on the environment, workers, communities, and society, as well as the potential impact of climate change on the companies in which the Fund invests.
As such, we have embedded considerations of ESG throughout all stages of our investment process, as well as within our own organization.
Velocity Ventures is a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment.
