To effectively support the deployment of its Responsible Private Equity (RPE) Policy and ultimately its ESG processes, Idinvest Partners has strengthened its internal organization by:
A - Forming a RPE/ESG Committee: In 2011, to monitor and lead Idinvest Partners' Responsible Private Equity policy. This steering group is composed of the Chairman of the Board, the Capital Growth Partner, the Director of Marketing and the COO in charge of Compliance. The committee meets to discuss core strategic points needed to define the RPE policy in the medium term, monitor ESG issues and handle internal and external communication. The committee members have both seniority and operational skills, qualities that guarantee the credibility of the RPE policy. Matthieu Baret is also responsible for ESG matters within our company.
B - Incorporating ESG issues in its current governance bodies. Namely:
- Idinvest Partners' Investment Committee is competent to examine any ESG Profile Reviews of its investments, and to either exclude a prospective investment or apply a certain degree and mode of ESG monitoring.
- For all of our investments we have also adapted the following internal documents (adapted for our different business lines) to account for ESG considerations: i) The Final Investment Recommendation (FIR) or the Final Acquisition Recommendation (FAR), which includes the summary of ESG Profile Review results in the form of an investment memorandum. ii) The Investment Committee Report, which includes the summary of ESG Profile Review results, the investment decision, and any specific or detailed ESG due diligence that may be initiated. iii) Investment Executive Summary, which validates the preparation of the ESG Profile Review and the ESG risk/rating.
