When evaluating a potential investment, Priveq considers the target company’s values, principles and its business operations. Priveq’s requirement is that the company satisfies Priveq’s guidelines and standards on ESG issues, or Priveq judges in its capacity as owner, Priveq will be able to change the company’s attitudes and conduct on these matters. With Priveq as a partner of a company, we promote the creation of a ESG policy, and that these matters are dealt with at Board level on a continuous basis.
Priveq designates an Investment Manager who ensures that ESG is conducted in a professional and responsible manner within Priveq and its portfolio companies. Each Investment Manager is accountable for the preparation of a ESG policy and Code of Conduct in each portfolio company, which incorporates Priveq’s principles as far as possible. ESG Managers compile annual reports that are presented to Priveq’s Boards, and a summary is sent to Priveq’s LPs.
