NewPort is founding partner of the Game Changers network, an investor network linked to a challenging project of The Hunger Project and Peace Parks Foundation around the Zinave National Park in Mozambique.
NewPort organises The Zero Hunger Games, an initiative of José Cubo, Director Finance & Governance at NewPort Capital. In 2006 he was also part of the Run for The Hunger Project: for 12 years, dozens of Business Teams ran through Amsterdam starting at the Olympic Stadium, raising more than EUR 1,850,000 for The Hunger Project. The first edition of The Zero Hunger Games in 2022 raised EUR 65,000 for the benefit of The Hunger Project. The Zero Hunger Games is the successor to the Run for the Hunger Project and takes place annually in May. All NewPort partners, portfolio companies, advisors, friends and associates are invited to join and contribute with their teams. All costs of the event are borne by NewPort, allowing 100% of the proceeds to go to The Hunger Project.More information
Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)
In order to comply with the sustainable finance disclosure regulation (SFDR)1, NewPort Capital B.V. (NewPort) makes the following disclosures:
Integration of sustainability risks
A sustainability risk means "an environmental, social or governance event or condition that, if it occurs, could cause an actual or potential material negative impact on the value of the investment".
Before any investment decisions are made on behalf of a fund that NewPort manages, an investment decision process is followed which in regard to specific investments includes the advice of the Investment Committee of such fund. NewPort views ESG as a standard topic in the pre-investment process. Part of the investment decisions process is that NewPort assesses the risks attached to a potential investment opportunity, which includes sustainability risks. Identified sustainability risks are considered by NewPort when making investment decisions.
In addition, NewPort pays staff a combination of fixed remuneration and variable remuneration (including a possible bonus). Variable remuneration for relevant staff also takes into account compliance with all policies and procedures which are in effect within NewPort, including those relating to taking into account sustainability risks on the investment decision making process.
Employees are made aware of the applicable policies and procedures when starting their employment with NewPort.
No consideration of sustainability adverse impacts
In accordance with article 4 sub 1 (b) of the SFDR, NewPort states that it does not consider adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors as set forth in article 4 sub 1 (a) of the Disclosure Regulation and therefore does not make the disclosures as described in article 4 sub 1 (a) of the SFDR. Given the small size of the organisation of NewPort, such disclosure as set forth in article 4 sub 1 (a) of the SFDR and the administrative burden in connection therewith would not be proportional. We will review this on an annually basis.
