PG Impact (Verein)
- Select investments
Our employee foundation PG Impact (Verein) supports entrepreneurial non-profit organizations and social enterprises that create positive, high-impact and measurable social and environmental benefits. Founded in 2006, it is run entirely by Partners Group employees who contribute their time and expertise to identifying, evaluating and investing in high-impact projects benefitting disadvantaged populations and the environment.
Grants and impact investments
PG Impact makes two types of monetary commitments to social organizations:
- Grants to non-profit organizations working to address a diverse set of challenging global issues faced by disadvantaged populations. These include organizations promoting education and job skills, health and wellness, and entrepreneurialism. There is a preference for organizations operating in a region where Partners Group has a local footprint; however, any organization doing impactful work will be considered.
- Direct impact investments into seed-stage social enterprises with a proven business model and demonstrated measurable social impact. Investment structures are flexible and may take the form of low-interest loans, convertible notes and equity. One hundred percent of any returns from these investments are recycled back into PG Impact for allocation to future projects.
