Baylis generates measurable developmental impact alongside financial returns
By focusing on job-intensive investments in the manufacturing, industrial and agricultural processing sectors, Baylis is strongly advancing several of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals in countries historically under-served by private capital. Baylis has also aligned itself with the African Development Bank's High Five initiative in support of the industrialization of African markets.
Working within the manufacturing sector, in particular, demands higher attention to Environmental and Social issues as these operations face greater environmental challenges and have greater inprovement potential on these quantifiable metrics.
Meanwhile, as itself a women and minority owned enterprise, Baylis has a strong commitment to diversity and inclusion. Baylis is committed to the integration of women into the operations of our portfolio companies from the factory floor to the boardroom.
Beyond gender diversity, Baylis also works to ensure that local talent is strongly represented both at the staff level and in the ownership and management our portfolio companies.
