Blue Wolf believes our commitment to responsible investment has allowed us to achieve superior risk-adjusted returns for our investors and sustainable profitability for our portfolio companies. Although we often invest in companies that have experienced complexity involving government, labor, or financial and operating distress, we strive to create businesses which generate value and have a long-term impact on society through sustainable growth, innovation, meaningful employment, and environmental responsibility. The integration of ESG risk and opportunity assessments into our investment process is designed to memorialize our perspective and establish a systematic framework through which ESG considerations can drive value in our portfolio. Through our Safety, Health and Environmental (“SHE”) Program, we have a history of working collaboratively with management teams, boards of directors, employees, their unions and local communities to accelerate their journey to SHE excellence. Blue Wolf’s ESG Policy will be a living document which reflects our long-held values as well as key learnings we realize in execution as we strive for continuous improvement in our effort to be a best in class responsible investor.
