Failup Ventures Management Oy (“Failup”) does not consider adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors as meant in the SFDR for the time being. However, Failup may decide to consider the PAI in the future when it has made its first investments and has gained a better understanding of how the PAI apply in its investment activities and how the required information is available from, or in relation to, its portfolio companies.

Considering that Failup is managing its first fund and is only started to build its portfolio, and taking into account that generally the portfolio companies are expected to be in their early stages, there might be some portfolio companies in relation to which the principal adverse sustainability impacts cannot be measured up to an adequate level. For example, due to the early stage of the portfolio company, relevant data may not necessarily be collected in a reliable way, or the company may not yet have sufficient systems or methods for monitoring or reporting the information required for these purposes.

The following includes information about Failup’s policies on the integration of sustainability risks in its investment decision‐making process in accordance with article 3 of the SFDR.

Sustainability risks are evaluated thoroughly in respect of each investment of the funds that Failup manages as a part of the due diligence and investment decision. Failup believes that the securities of companies who operate responsibly will yield better results as investment objects in the long run. As a part of the investment analysis, Failup conducts ESG due diligence process prior to all investments.

Environmental risks considered include, among others, adverse effects of climate change, emissions, energy usage, neglected energy efficiency, neglected resource efficiency including recycling, as well as effects of loss of biodiversity.

Social risks considered include health and safety issues, diversity and inclusion, employee satisfaction and human rights.

Governance risks considered include legal compliance, applicable industry practices, cybersecurity, business ethics including ESG policies, transparency, and general governance practices.

Failup considers sustainability risks’ impact on investment returns. Sustainability risks, like any other risks, could in the worst-case result in a complete loss of an investment. However, Failup has assessed that sustainability risks as such are not likely to have a material negative impact on the returns of the funds it manages in the long term.
