Our Commitment To Responsible Investing
We have a deeply embedded commitment to the principles of Responsible Investment. Our approach helps us create sustainable value for our investors, our portfolio companies and protects the interests of society.
Embracing our Environmental, Social and Governance responsibilities
Throughout the lifetime of each of our portfolio companies, starting even before the deal is complete, the imperatives of good conduct in Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) factors shape our investment approach and the strategy of the management teams we back. For us, ESG is both a mandate to work with the highest integrity and a source of continued value and differentiation as our businesses grow and evolve.
Driving a Continuous Improvement Approach
We seek to continuously improve and deepen our understanding and commitment to the principles of Responsible Investing and ESG. We measure the extent and effectiveness with which we apply ESG factors in our assessment of each investment opportunity – our goal being to enhance our best practices and policies. We proactively work with our management teams to make sure ESG issues are embedded in their decision making and that they freely disclose potential issues as they arise.
Supporting the UN PRI
In addition to the policies, procedure and values that we and our portfolio embrace, we are also signatories to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (‘PRI’).
