❝ Vivriti’s purpose has been steadfastly rooted in transforming the Indian debt capital markets to a level playing field, where the mid-market segment becomes mainstream. Financial inclusion foray has been impactful in granularizing our portfolio and enabling credit access to the underserved credit seekers in India.
While we are clear of our mission to bring parity within debt capital markets and make Vivriti’s portfolio companies a standalone asset strategy for global lenders and capital allocators, we know our domain extends naturally to positively impacting the underserved segments of the society. Our loan and investment books form the catalyst in building a portfolio that is environmentally sustainable and socially inclusive. Along with our ESG Policy and ESG risk assessment framework, we have implemented the Green Finance Framework and Energy Policy, which are dedicated to advancing our climate strategy and promoting decarbonization efforts. From measuring our carbon emissions and minimizing waste to fostering diversity and promoting social responsibility, we have strived to integrate sustainable practices into every aspect of our operations. Moreover, we have made great strides in enhancing our supply chain management practices to ensure ethical sourcing, and we have actively collaborated with our partners and suppliers to promote sustainable practices throughout our value chain.
Transparency and accountability are core principles we firmly uphold to create a robust, sustainable, and resilient organization, and ensuring strong governance remains our topmost priority. This year we have appointed our third Independent Director on Board for an additional layer of oversight and accountability. We regularly undergo external audits to enhance our internal controls, identify and mitigate risks, and ensure strict compliance with regulatory requirements.
Sustainability is an ongoing journey, and I am cognizant that we ought to remain agile and adaptable in order to address emerging challenges and seize new opportunities. Therefore, in the coming year, we will focus on further integrating sustainability into our innovation processes, fostering a culture of continuous improvement, and setting ambitious goals that will accelerate our progress towards a carbon-neutral and socially responsible future. ❞
