ESG Page

“Our desire is for our portfolio companies to take small but tangible, measurable steps rather than make tall empty promises.”

Sameer Mehta
Investment Director & Head of Southeast Asia
Our Perspective

We Balance Business Objectives & Sustainability

The DSGCP investment mantra is to build insurgent consumer brands that last. This requires a measured approach - focusing on business fundamentals and sustainable value creation. Similarly, we believe that ESG implementation in early-stage businesses also requires a step-by-step, measured approach to balance business objectives and sustainability.

Our Point of View

The DSGCP Model of Building Sustainable Businesses

We recognize that India and Southeast Asia are developing economies grappling with widespread poverty, inequality and political instability. Therefore, the mindshare for early-stage businesses is more survival in nature.

We have developed a building blocks approach to ESG implementation, starting with People and Prosperity. We believe these two blocks are foundational in building any sustainable business from which Planet, Peace and Partnerships can follow.
