07.2. For the roles for which you have RI oversight/accountability or implementation responsibilities, indicate how you execute these responsibilities.


Hermes GPE investment committees

Hermes GPE has separate investment committees for both private equity and infrastructure, which have oversight responsibility and accountability in relation to the integration of RI into investment and investment management related decisions, along with the heads of the respective departments.  The investment committees consider all investment and divestment decisions, as well as key investment management matters.

Heads of Department

The heads of private equity and infrastructure have oversight responsibility and accountability in relation to the incorporation of RI into all business activities in their respective areas.

Investment managers, analysts and other staff 

All staff have individual responsibility for the incorporation of responsibility into their day to day activities. In 2015 we created a Pledge of Responsibility and Transparency. This pledge is intended to express the commitment of each staff member individually to act ethically and crucially to put the interests of clients and their beneficiaries at the heart of what they do.

07.3. Indicate the number of dedicated responsible investment staff your organisation has.

07.4. Additional information. [Optional]

Within our private equity activities, the ESG assessment of new investment opportunities is guided by the Hermes GPE responsible investment framework and supported by two central ‘Responsible Investment Officers’ who are also part of the investment team.  Hermes has a central, dedicated, responsible investment team with which Hermes GPE investment teams interact at least quarterly.
