Funding for a sustainable business

In order to build credibility as a sustainable business, your funding needs to come from a sustainable source. If your company has investors, you therefore need to consider if they are the right investors.

There is a risk of the credibility of your business being called into question if those investing in the business do not share your values in matters such as product development, sustainable investment and equality.

The EU taxonomy for sustainable investments

Sustainability will also play a major role when the time comes to value your business. Parts of the regulations developed by the EU are already being applied today, known as taxonomy for sustainable investments. This applies to large companies and categorises what can be classed as environmentally sustainable. The increased requirements for reporting in the large companies can mean that small and medium-sized companies are also affected, in the role of suppliers to the larger companies.

All the questions from the sustainability pages are collected here.
