OUR GUIDING PRINCIPLES
Our environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) policies and procedures create a framework to identify ESG-related risks that could be financially material and adversely impact the value of our investments. Proactively understanding and finding solutions to such risks, in all phases of the investment process, is integral to our fiduciary responsibilities.
Collaborate with sponsors, owners, and management teams who are aligned with our general approach to sustainability and strive to minimize environmental, public health, safety, and social risks.
Evaluate and exclude industries and specific companies which conflict with our internal guidelines for responsible investing.
Develop a risk analysis to identify material ESG factors that could adversely impact investment returns and/or the well-being of the communities we invest.
Establish ongoing expectations with regards to ESG transparency, disclosure, and reporting at the outset of each transaction, and maintain an open dialogue with our investment partners to rectify any ESG-related issues that develop post-close.
