At MEVP, we want to be pioneers of ethical investing in the MENA region because we firmly believe that even if a company is making considerable profits today, if it’s not managing its ESG risks and opportunities properly, then it is in danger of failing in the next couple of years. However, by laying an ESG foundation as a core pilar of our growth, and adopting circular principles, the firm and the companies under its portfolio will have business models in which resources never become waste and will secure more lasting success.
