By automating the EU Taxonomy screening and assessment process across its portfolio, Briink helped Lightrock devote 30% more time to impact-making
For its EU Taxonomy analyses, Lightrock relied on excel sheets and the EU Taxonomy Compass. But verifying compliance with the TSC and DNSH criteria requires a high degree of technical and domain-specific knowledge and the firm often lacked crucial data from its earlier stage portfolio companies. As a result, its in-house assessment process became extremely time-consuming.
Lightrock is a global private equity platform that invests in businesses that contribute positively to society and the planet. It strongly believes in the role technology has to play in helping investors to make even better decisions and scale the value they provide with and for companies from their portfolio.
Lightrock adopted Briink’s EU Taxonomy AI-Scanning Solution and the Briink Taxonomy Platform to verify the Taxonomy eligibility and alignment of the economic activities performed by its portfolio companies. Briink enabled Lightrock to quickly identify the relevant activities, evidence the outputs and automate substantial parts of its data collection, documents and evidence extraction processes.
We see a lot of value in Briink’s tool, particularly when looking at funds with a high number of investments, which allows for significant time savings.
