SIMA ESMS Policy
SIMA is committed to reducing social and environmental risks while working to achieve social goals and improve the lives of low-income people. Our Environmental and Social Management System (ESMS) is integrated into our investment process and aims to identify and mitigate environmental and social risks and provide guidance and support for our portfolio companies’ management of ESG issues. We believe that a robust ESMS not only helps protect against these risks, but is a necessary prerequisite for achieving social impact goals.
