Ethics and innovation share a common goal: to improve the well-being of humanity.
Innovation, by definition, is neutral. It is the kind of use that is made of it that may help create new useful goods and improve general quality of life.
That is how we consider ethics and innovation to be complementary.
Innovation is the development of solutions that meet new or existing needs in a unique way. An innovative environment could increase employee motivation, creativity and productivity. It is one of the key elements driving human progress.
However, nothing comes for free. Innovative and disruptive technologies lead to side effects that do not necessarily positively affect all stakeholders. That is why we try to consider ethical aspects of our investments. Our aim is to invest in innovation and to invest "responsibly"
Innovation must be beneficial for both society and companies. Thus, we pay attention to products developed by the companies in which we are invested, as well as their applications and uses
