We are proud to release our Ethical Investment Policy today. After several months of development and consultation with all team members, we have formed a principles-based policy that gives everyone in Matū a common framework for ethical investment.
We have also defined specific exclusions for areas that we won’t touch, and explicitly acknowledged grey areas and unpredictability that will be common amongst early-stage companies. The policy empowers the independent Investment Committee to make decisions about investment and divestment for our fund on an ethical as well as scientific and commercial basis.
