PE 03. Description of approach to RI

03.1. Provide a brief overview of your organisation’s approach to responsible investment in private equity.

All of our Private Equity investments are in renewable energy infrastructure and are thoroughly analysed from an ESG perspective, driven by formal environmental impact assessments, permitting procedures for potential stakeholder impacts and engagements as well as addressing any material governance weaknesses prior to investing. Investments are managed to meet or exceed environmental permit targets and post-build assessments on permit compliance are performed.

PE 04. Investment guidelines and RI

04.1. Indicate if your organisation’s investment guidelines for private equity refer to responsible investment.

04.2. Describe how your organisation’s investment guidelines outline your expectations on staff and portfolio companies’ approach towards ESG issues [Optional].

The assessment and mitigation of environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks are an integral and necessary consideration of our due diligence processes for each investment and go beyond simply complying with the applicable environmental laws and other permitting procedures. Our Investment Committee must approve all potential investments against our ESG-parameters and any breach prevents us from making an investment.
