"Output" vs "Outcomes



Sustainability isn't just about achieving static goals - it is about igniting massive change.


At Bintang Capital Partners, when we invest it’s important that we consider the "why" and not just focus on the "what".


For instance, it’s great to plant trees – but that’s just a means to an end.


The end goal surely has to be the restoration of ecosystems and thriving biodiversity and birdlife a regenerated forest brings.


Similarly, when we invest in businesses, we should focus on the ripple effects they create: the lasting positive transformations that echo far beyond financial metrics and ESG data being gathered.


This is the essence of Bintang’s "Triple-I Strategy": Investing in Impact and Innovation.


We hand pick businesses that push boundaries, not just in their fields, but in terms of the impact they create on society and the environment.


Take Blue Planet Environmental Solutions, a waste management powerhouse we committed capital to in 2023 which recently secured additional funding from IFU.


Whilst data around the daily tonnage of waste that Blue Planet processes is impressive, it's the downstream effects that they create which inspired our team when we were considering this investment.


Cleaner air, healthier communities, and even alternative energy generation – these are the outcomes generated by Blue Planet that create scalable and lasting impact.


We need to remind ourselves that whilst data outputs represent the tangible results of our actions (and are an important part of impact investing), these are only pieces of a much larger puzzle.


The bigger story lies in the outcomes: how lives are changed- hopefully for the better - as a consequence of actions we and our portfolio companies take.


We prepared a short LinkedIn article that delves into the crucial distinction between outputs and outcomes in the realm of sustainability, particularly within the context of private equity.


We hope that you enjoy reading the article below.
