The ESG framework developed for the fund of funds activity includes an annual assessment covering 30 KPIs at portfolio company level: Prior to each fund investment, Access undertake to analyze thoroughly how the GP deals with environmental issues, how they address social items and how aligned are the management teams with shareholders and investors. Fund managers selected by Access will agree through a side letter their own commitment to ESG and use best efforts to integrate ESG criteria to the management of the fund. KPIs are divided into 5 categories:

❖ CSR management (4 KPIs)

❖ Environment (5 KPIs)

❖ Social (12 KPIs)

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.
