Doughty Hanson is one of the longest-established and most experienced private equity firms in Europe.

For more than 30 years, we have been investing in market leading companies and creating value by driving operational improvements across our portfolio.  Our team has particularly focused on, and been succesful at, developing close relationships with the owners of, and advisers to, family/founder owned businesses throughout Europe.  This has resulted in more than 50% of our investments being made in family/founder owned businesses.

Working alongside management, we have helped many companies grow into large, successful international organisations. Many of the companies we have acquired are now listed on major stock exchanges, and others have become divisions of larger global companies.  To achieve this, we consistently work in close partnership with management teams, develop shared strategic goals and provide ongoing support through the value-creation initiatives that we undertake.  This includes targetting ESG improvements that have created significant value for our LPs.

Whilst none of our current portfolio companies (for private equity there are currently 5) are PRI signatories we have one company  (LM Windpower) signed up as a member of the UN Global Compact (since 2010) and reporting to GRI G4.

We require all portfolio companies to enhance their monitoring and disclosure of ESG information and where appropriate to their business model we encourage them to adopt leading reporting frameworks such as the GRI and to consider membership to the UN Global Compact.

09.2. Additional information. [Optional]

All our investments are made in companies founded-in and headquartered-in developed markets (across Europe but occassionally, in the past, in North America).  Some companies have a manufacturing/operational footprint that includes the emerging markets and so our work involves an assesment of ESG opportunity across many jurisdictions (developed and emerging).
