Adenia Partners verified for alignment with the IFC Operating Principles for Impact Management

MAURITIUS, March 31, 2021 – Adenia Partners, a leading responsible investment firm in Africa, is proud to publish its first disclosure statement that reaffirms the alignment of its processes with each of the Operating Principles for Impact Management. The nine principles offer a common framework for investors to ensure that social and environmental considerations are purposefully integrated throughout the investment life cycle.

Since it was founded in 2002, Adenia has been committed to responsible investing for a sustainable Africa, actively seeking to minimize adverse effects and create positive social and environmental impact through its investments. To strengthen its approach, Adenia developed an in-house Impact Management and Measurement framework together with Ibis Consulting in 2019. This framework integrates guidelines from leading impact bodies, including the Operating Principles for Impact Management, the Principles for Responsible Investment, the Sustainable Development Goals and the Impact Management Project.

Adenia’s ESG framework focuses on two important goals for the African continent: the improvement of job quality for all employees and the increased sustainability of infrastructure and standards. It sets clear impact targets for each company that are tracked on an annual basis, providing investment teams with a monitoring tool to ensure the implementation of the impact action plan.

As a signatory to the Operating Principles for Impact Management, Adenia is committed to contributing to the development and adoption of industry-wide impact management practices, built on best practices observed by signatories.

“At Adenia, we aim to create stronger companies with quality jobs, meeting the highest industry and environmental standards in order to increase the enterprise value for our investors, while maximizing the positive impact we have on communities,” said Stephane Bacquaert, Managing Partner at Adenia. “We have always understood that much more can be achieved when impact targets are clearly stated, outcomes monitored and progress tracked and disclosed. The publication of our first disclosure statement and adherence to this global standard underscores our commitment to responsible investing and active impact management.”

Signatories must publish annual public disclosure statements demonstrating how they adhere to the Principles. Adenia’s statement, which has been externally verified by Better Way, can be viewed here.
