Our ESG Vision

Creating Real Value

Our ESG Approach

Creating real value involves driving positive change through responsible and sustainable practices.

We recognise the profound impact business can have at all levels – our commitment to environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles is at the core of our investment philosophy.

ESG guides and shapes our investments and operations.

Our approach revolves around three pillars:

1. Environmental Responsibility

We actively seek opportunities to invest in businesses that are committed to reducing their environmental footprint. This includes assessing energy efficiency, waste management, and sustainable sourcing practices. We collaborate with portfolio companies to implement eco-friendly initiatives, driving long-term value while contributing to a healthier planet.

2. Social Impact

Social responsibility is ingrained in our investment strategy. We strive to support businesses that prioritise employee welfare, diversity, and community engagement. By fostering inclusive workplaces and contributing to local communities, we aim to create a positive ripple effect that extends beyond financial returns.

3. Governance Excellence

Strong corporate governance is the cornerstone of our investment decisions. We work closely with portfolio companies to enhance transparency, accountability, and ethical decision-making. Our commitment to upholding high governance standards ensures the long-term sustainability of our investments and fosters trust among stakeholders.

ESG investment decision integration

Due diligence: ESG factors are seamlessly integrated into our due diligence process. We assess potential risks and opportunities related to environmental impact, social practices, and governance structures.

Stakeholder engagement: we actively engage with portfolio companies, encouraging open dialogue on ESG matters. This collaborative approach helps identify areas for improvement and ensures alignment with our values.

Continuous monitoring: ESG performance is monitored throughout the investment lifecycle. Regular assessments and updates enable us to adapt strategies and address evolving challenges.

To underscore our support to ESG matters, we commit 1% of all investments to an ESG fund creating donations to organisations that directly change lives for the better.
