Corporate social responsibility

We want to be the best possible partner to all our interest groups and act in a responsible manner for the benefit of our environment. Our most important task is to increase the long-term value of the sites in a sustainable way and generate added value for all business parties in the long term. Samla Capital is a responsible recognisable and long-term actor. At the same time, we want to help our society and environment through charity outside our investment activities.

 

 

Samla Capital is investing in real estate according to the principles for responsible investment. Samla Capital has committed to responsible investment policies. In Samla, we are dedicated to achieve the best possible returns for our clients investments by capitalizing possibilities and managing risks efficiently at the same time. We believe that those investors and companies who consider the factors related to responsibility will benefit in long-term. Also, the externalities of Samla`s managed capitals directed to nature and social environment will be reduced by long-term standpoint of responsibility.

In addition, our goal is to increase the openness of the investment operations, transparency and the trust of stakeholders. For this reason we have integrated ESG viewpoints in Samla`s investment operations according to our principles of responsible investment. ESG viewpoints include environmental (E), Social (S) and Governance (G) factors.

Samla Capital funded the building of a school for 200 children in Bangladesh

In August 2017, Myanmar's army attacked Rohingya Muslim villages, forcing hundreds of thousands of Rohingya to leave their homes and flee persecution abroad. Most of them settled in Cox’s Bazar in southern Bangladesh, forming the world's largest refugee camp, Kutupalong, within a few months. Approx. 600,000 people live in the Kutupalong camp, and many smaller Rohingya villages are nearby.

Samla Capital funded a school building for 200 children next to the Kutupalong Refugee Camp. The school building was funded as a donation through Fida International. Fida’s local partners are responsible for the building and operations of the school. The new school building will expand the area’s current school's premises by adding at least two classrooms, an office and accommodation facilities. At the school, the children of the refugee camp receive the desired protection, security and instruction that support the children's future.

Sports is an important part of people’s well-being

Exercise and sports are close to hearts of Samla’s owners – indeed, one of our founders is a former Olympic skier. We want to help people find the healing power and joy of exercise, as well as assist young, ambitious athletes as they progress toward their goals. We support local sports clubs and actively participate in the fund raising and sponsorship activities in the sports world.

 

Samla Capital offers encouragement to young people

In spring 2019, Samla Capital granted more than a hundred scholarships to primary school children in Jyväskylä. With the scholarships, we want to encourage young people to do well at school and root for them to achieve and surpass the set goals.
