aMoon is proud to announce that we are now a signatory to the UN PRI, joining the world’s leading network of institutional investors committed to incorporating ESG factors into our investment processes.
The United Nations launched the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in 2006 with the understanding that environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues can impact the performance of investment portfolios and better align investors with the broader objectives of society. Since then, more than 4,500 companies hailing from over 80 countries, representing some $100 trillion, have committed to these following principles.
“We are honored to join a growing global network of investors working to put responsible investing into practice and to contribute to the development of a more sustainable global financial system,” said Brachie Sprung, aMoon’s Chief Communications Officer and Head of Investor Relations. “Our goal is to integrate ESG factors into our investment engine and operations which will enable us as investors to better mitigate risks and identify value creation opportunities. By doing this we believe we can simply become better investors.”
aMoon’s commitment to ESG aligns with the fund’s mission to accelerate cure, and to serve as an engine for innovation and economic growth. We work tirelessly to identify and fund pioneering solutions that tackle healthcare’s most pressing challenges while simultaneously producing exceptional returns for our LPs.
Our decision to join the PRI follows a yearlong review process to strengthen our approach to sustainable investing. aMoon is in the process of developing a framework and an engine to incorporate ESG considerations into our investment lifecycle, in line with industry guidance and the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. This is a process that will take time and we’re pleased to begin our ESG journey.
As Israel’s leading HealthTech fund, Impact is in aMoon’s DNA. Incorporating the principles of ESG into our work is a natural step in our commitment to sustainable, responsible, impactful investing.
