Since 2015 Priveq Investment conducts an annual evaluation of the portfolio companies’ work and status within Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (“ESG”) issues. In 2016, a survey was sent to all portfolio companies (14) and were answered by 100 percent of the respondents
The objective of the study is to gain an understanding of the opportunities and risks associated with ESG in the individual companies and in the portfolio as a whole, and the development compared to the previous year.
After conducting the study, each company has been supplied with advise on how to develop their ESG work, including policy templates and definitions of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the ILO Declaration on Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work.
A summarised report based on the answers from the study is sent to all LPs.
