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.

- Commitment to ESG
- Company ethics
- Decision-making and strategic oversight

- Governance of stakeholder engagement
