Within its investment process and due diligence, Curiosity Venture Capital B.V. (“Curiosity”) takes sustainability risks (i.e. environmental, social, or governance events or conditions, the occurrence of which could have an actual or potential material adverse effect on the value of the investment), into account. The results of such assessment form part of in its investment decision. Curiosity could decide to refrain from investing in the event of disproportional sustainability risks, or apply measures to reduce or mitigate the identified sustainability risks.
Curiosity does not consider adverse impacts of its investment decisions on sustainability factors. Sustainability factors mean environmental, social, and employee concerns, the responsible use of technology in line with regulations, respect for human rights, inclusion &diversity, and the fight against corruption and bribery. Curiosity aims to collect information regarding principal adverse impacts from its portfolio companies. However, as currently insufficient information is available to consider all negative effects of its investment decisions Curiosity is not able to collect and report on these adverse impacts as required by the SFDR. For this reason, Curiosity does not consider adverse impacts on sustainability factors when making investment decisions. If in the future the availability of this information improves, Curiosity will reassess its decision in this regard.
