Shanghai Ehong Capital Co., Ltd. founded in 2007, is an equity investment institution and early practitioner of impact investing in China.
Since its establishment, Ehong Capital has held itself to standards of a SRI institution by employing negative screening practices. From 2007 to 2012, Ehong Capital mainly invested in finance, TMT, new energy and materials, and modern agriculture.
From 2012 onwards, under the guidance of global sustainable development agenda and core characteristics of impact investing, Ehong Capital has formed an impact investing strategy that relies on top-down analysis of most relevant social and environmental problems that can be solved with business solutions. The areas of focus include but not limit to sustainable agriculture, clean energy, waste, health and elderly-care, and quality education.
In 2018, Ehe Impact Fund was established with a charity foundation being its cornerstone LP.
With several successful exits, Ehong Capital has achieved competitive returns for its investors and generated significant social and environmental benefits in reducing GHG emission, alleviating poverty, supporting vulnerable groups and providing employment and education opportunities.
Due to its outstanding performance, Ehong Capital was awarded the Annual Investment Institution Award of China Social Enterprise and Impact Investment in 2017 as the first ever to receive this honor.
