At Endeavour Vision, we believe that good business means making investments that consider the wider impact on society and the environment to deliver positive social and financial returns.

By backing innovation that aspires to transform healthcare, our investments naturally have positive societal impacts. We go beyond this by considering environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors at every stage of the investment cycle and working with our portfolio companies to develop their sustainability practices. We achieve this through “ESG health checks” where we objectively assess a company’s ESG performance and help to guide it towards continual improvement.

Our commitment

Endeavour Vision is a signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) and a participant of the UN Global Compact Network in Switzerland & Liechtenstein. We embed the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact into our strategies and operations, and we are committed to respecting human and labour rights, safeguarding the environment, and working against corruption in all its forms.
