For the sponsored funds, TriLinc requires prospective portfolio companies to adhere to the IFC Exclusion List and to complete ESG and impact screens. TriLinc's in-country investment partners oversee the completion of the screens. TriLinc's Impact & ESG Analysts prepare an Initial Sustainability and Impact Review on each investment, which includes information from the potential borrower company’s ESG and impact screens; the company’s sustainability report (if available); any environmental and social impact assessments that have been undertaken by third-parties and government institutions; 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. The Review is evaluated by TriLinc's Sustainability and Impact Committee. Prospective borrower companies must pass both the credit analysis and the Initial Sustainability and Impact Review in order to be eligible for financing. Aspects of the Review are incorporated into the Credit Memorandum and all ESG and Impact data are maintained in TriLinc's integrated investment database.
