Since the late 1980s, concerns for sustainable development have gradually emerged in public international law and in national legal systems. Large organizations are now accountable for their social and environmental footprint.

While legal and statutory obligations today almost exclusively concern large corporations and listed companies, it seemed inconceivable for Korelya to stay apart from this irreversible movement of accountability, for both ethical and economic reasons. We believe companies embracing the societal and environmental challenges will drive more value creation in the long term.

That is why we chose to set ambitious yet realistic goals, with an action plan designed to be enriched over time and consisting of several steps in line with Korelya Capital’s growth.
