Sustainability Risk Disclosure: Berlin Innovation Ventures Management GmbH (“BIV”) focuses on pre-seed software startups, mostly in computer science innovation. Most investments are developer tools or B2B software. Due to this focus, sustainability risks (i.e. environmental, social or governance events or conditions, the occurrence of which could have an actual or potential material adverse effect on the value of the investment) are rarely (if ever) present in the investment candidates that intersect our focus. Thus, BIV uses an ad-hoc approach to sustainability risks: they are evaluated on an as-needed and non-binding basis. At all times, BIV’s approach to sustainability risks will respect the principle of proportionality taking due account of the strategic relevance of an investment as well as its transactional context.
consideration of adverse impacts on sustainability factors: BIV does not consider adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors (i.e. environmental, social and employee concerns, respect for human rights and the fight against corruption and bribery). No sustainability indicators are currently used. The administrative burden associated with considering adverse impacts on sustainability factors (particularly the use of sustainability indicators) is disproportionate in light of the very limited relevance such impacts could have in the context of BIV's investment strategy (i.e. pre-seed software startups, mostly in computer science innovation).
