We are committed to be working with our portfolio companies on their ESG and sustainability journey. We know there is a long way to go, but hope to contribute to their progress. Sustainability is a marathon, not a sprint and we hope to be transparent about this process, from challenges to small wins.

At Lightbox, we invest in tech-smart and sustainable consumer brands that contribute to a better environment. We believe in backing businesses that bring profit and purpose together.

Our mission is to focus on innovation and differentiation by building brands that drive responsible consumption without compromising on unit economics. Our ESG philosophy lies on 4 pillars of technology, brand, consumer preferences and sustainability.

The core of our investment decision lies on 3 values
