Qualitas Energy is committed to decarbonization and strives to reduce its emissions through its operations and investments.
In 2020, Qualitas Energy was able to calculate and offset its office CO2 consumption and employee-related emissions, thus becoming a carbon neutral company. This continues to this day.
Qualitas Energy promotes sustainable practices and inclusive attitudes in all its offices. We understand that our impact is not only in our investments, but also in our daily operations. We try to mitigate sustainability risks by recycling, purchasing sustainable food and beverages, and providing reusable water bottles for our employees.
In addition, to enhance the relationships and collaboration of our teams, we have launched a series of Q-Clubs, such as Q-Community and Q-Knowledge, which promote events and initiatives that foster knowledge sharing and the integration of our teams.
Qualitas Energy strongly believes that a more diverse and inclusive workplace will foster a better company culture and a more efficient work environment. We encourage our employees to share ideas and lead initiatives.
To support this, we have created Q-Diversity, a group led by employees for employees to help identify areas for improvement and create plans to address them.
Qualitas Energy places extreme value on the wellbeing of its employees and cultivates an environment built on a strong and inclusive community.
Through our expertise in the sector and in operations and management, Qualitas Energy strives to maintain healthy growth whilst optimizing internal and external processes alongside ESG considerations.
All of Qualitas Energy’s actions encompass the aim of transitioning to a renewables-based electricity system helping to decarbonise the planet and slow global warming.
Having successfully managed assets across six countries and multiple strategies, Qualitas Energy is focused on continuing to find opportunities for future expansion into promising regions and technologies, in order to further facilitate the transition to a more sustainable society.
5. Circular economy
Qualitas Energy exists within a circular economy by using natural and unlimited resources as the basis for generating and selling electricity to society, thereby reducing carbon emissions. As new technologies emerge, Qualitas Energy will explore how to integrate asset circularity into its approach, deepening its commitment to this pillar.
Considering ESG factors involves making an assessment of the non-financial aspects of a company. For Qualitas Energy, ESG is about making environmental, social and governance concerns an integral part of the investment process through due diligence and post-investment monitoring.
Qualitas Energy strives to apply ESG factors at two levels: internally among its employees and management team, and externally in its investments. We believe this will result in the evaluation of ESG considerations at all levels, allowing us to allocate our capital responsibly. The assessment and management of ESG factors are formally integrated into Qualitas Energy’s investment decision-making.
