ESG Commitment

Our ESG efforts are in collaboration with Capital Concept - ESG & Sustainable Finance Consultants

The past decade has witnessed a proliferation of frameworks incentivising companies to adopt and report on rapidly environmental, social, and governance (ESG) standards. Those developments and a growing market appetite for greater ESG information have subjected company ESG performance and disclosure to greater scrutiny in the court of public opinion and even spawned new litigation.
Venture Capital firms all over the world were consequently pressured to “future proof” their businesses and focus on ESG standards to meet stakeholder expectations and exponentially increase the value of their portfolios.

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.

We target profitable and disruptive technology start-ups, but we also look for businesses which help achieve many of the United Nations’ sustainable development goals:
