Responsible asset and investment management

"Responsible asset and investment management is embedded at the core of our business and our investments. We are committed to investing with our ESG Principles in mind, creating a lasting positive impact on the environment and the communities in which we invest.

Our ESG Principles serve as a guideline for sustainable and responsible investments across all our segments and reflect our commitment to socially and environmentally responsible behaviour."

Constantin Baack, CEO

Our ESG Goals

As PRI (Principles for Responsible Investment) Signatory we commit to their principles:

  • Principle 1: We will incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes.
  • Principle 2: We will be active owners and incorporate ESG issues into our ownership policies and practices.
  • Principle 3: We will seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which we invest.
  • Principle 4: We will promote acceptance and implementation of the Principles within the investment industry.
  • Principle 5: We will work together to enhance our effectiveness in implementing the Principles.
  • Principle 6: We will each report on our activities and progress towards implementing the Principles.

Our investments and corporate processes facilitate the energy transition and make a positive contribution to the environment.


Through our activities we aim to improve equality of opportunity for people and communities and increase the wellbeing of our employees by creating a healthy and safe working environment.


We seek to actively manage our company and investments in a manner that is consistent with our values, protects the integrity of our stake­holders and respects the world in which we live.

For many years, our focus has been on developing and providing investments that are positioned for the future: Renewable energy projects that are essential for the energy transition, ships with alternative propulsion technologies to further decarbonise global trade, and real estate that meets high sustainability standards.

UN Sustainable Development Goals


Our renewable energy investment strategies, our decarbonisation strategy in shipping and our sustainable approach in our real estate investments contribute to the energy transition and the reduction of CO2 emissions. With this approach, we contribute to the following SDG targets:


The Elbe Foundation, which we established, supports educationally disadvantaged youth and is thus in line with SDGs 4, 5 and 10. In addition, we are committed to equal opportunities and human dignity, ensure good and equal working conditions and actively monitor health, safety and environmental (HSE) aspects. This is in line with SDGs 5 and 8.


With our responsible asset management approach and transparent business activities with integrity, we contribute to Development Goals 16 and 17.

We assume social responsibility at our location:  Education is crucial for a professional future. Many children in Hamburg from socially deprived, low-income and / or immigrant families start school at a disadvantage. For over 18 years, MPC Capital has therefore been supporting educationally disadvantaged young people with its Elbstiftung.

As part of the Elbstation Academy project, young people rehearse plays, produce radio reports and make films, which are then performed in theatres throughout Hamburg. In this way, Elbstation promotes self-esteem and motivation, helps young people to become successful and facilitates their access to better education.

By integrating ESG factors into the development process for our investment structures and into ongoing management work, we assume responsibility for the social and environmental challenges of today’s world.
