We believe in being responsible global citizens through our work, and as influential shareholders we believe we have a unique opportunity to magnify our contribution through the combined activities and employee base of our portfolio companies. We recognise that responsible investment requires continual improvement and we are committed to continual learning across our fund processes, operations and community. It’s the right thing to do.
Five V’s responsible investment approach is guided by the
End-to-end integration: We will explicitly integrate consideration of ESG risks and opportunities in all stages of our investment process: screening, due diligence, portfolio management and exit preparation.
Active ownership: We incorporate ESG considerations into our ownership practices, and we work with our portfolio companies to improve their practices with respect to ESG.
ESG priorities: For all our portfolio companies we bring explicit focus on (at a minimum) decarbonisation, employee wellbeing and safety, employee engagement, diversity, community engagement, ethical supply chains and cybersecurity.
Transparency: We will regularly report on our ESG performance to key stakeholders, including disclosing ESG-related metrics and outcomes.
