Our sustainability policy
We engage with portfolio companies to grow and generate profit in a way that is admired by employees, clients, suppliers, shareholders.
To make companies grow in a "good" and sustainable way, we have developed our sustainability policy in the respect of international law on human rights and to the application of environmental, social and governance criteria.
Tracking the interdependency between social and business results unleashes important opportunities for innovation, growth and sustainable social impact at scale.
This is the approach that inspires us.
Our journey to Shared Value
The key to generating long-term growth.
We consider responsible investment as part of the strategy to consistently create value for our investors.
For this reason, environmental, social and governance factors are incorporated into the investment process and active ownership. Since 2009, we are long standing signatory of the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). We participate in the annual reporting assessment cycle of the PRI and provide ongoing feeedback on our sustainability actions.
Since 2015, we have received A or A+ assessments in the Strategy & Governance and Private Equity modules from PRI. In 2020, we received an A+ rating in both modules, placing us in the top percentile among over 2,000 signatories.
