General Partners are more and more involved in ESG issues and tend to integrate best practises in portfolio companies. Each year, Access assesses progress that have been made the previous year. The implementation of a specific ESG policy or charter is constantly increasing.
Access maintains an ongoing dialogue with fund managers and therefore has the opportunity to ensure that adequate governance and SRI action plan are implemented within its GPs community.
Since 2008, Access has never committed to a fund managed who had formally refused to engage with the ESG matter.
