TriLinc reports to its sponsored Funds' investors on ESG activities in multiple ways. After each loan is made, TriLinc creates an investment spotlight that includes highlights of the industry and country context in which the borrower company is operating, and a description of how the borrower company is working to foster employee equality and empowerment, reduce its environmental footprint, and further local community development. At the borrower company level, TriLinc also produces an Initial Sustainability and Impact report (ISIR) for each investment that includes information from the potential borrower company’s ESG and impact screens; the company’s sustainability report (if available); desktop research on the company, industry, and country of operation; standards, best practices and certifications established by local and international oversight bodies; and an assessment of sustainability risks and opportunities, and is available to its constituents upon request. Annually, for as long as the company's loan is in TriLinc's portfolio, TriLinc gathers updated information on policies, practices and relevant certifications, and updates reporting material as needed.
A Portfolio and Impact Update is produced quarterly and includes portfolio- and borrower-level impact data, ESG metrics and borrower highlights. For TGIF, an annual Sustainability and Impact Report is produced to highlight the progress that TGIF has achieved toward its socioeconomic development impact objectives, as well as the progress borrower companies have made toward their self-selected impact objective(s) and in contributing to the economic, social, and environmental well-being of their communities. The Sustainability and Impact Report is independently reviewed by Moss Adams, a third-party assurance provider.
