Following investment, ESG remains a key focus throughout Zouk’s ownership. Zouk seek to monitor the performance of ESG throughout the investment horizon.

Zouk actively monitors progress on ESG matters and describes the management of ESG matters in its quarterly reports. The team also looks at the board packs and reviews ESG related information. Furthermore, the team ensures that investee companies are engaging with ESG issues identified during due diligence and clearly encourage the investment companies as to develop internal ESG policies to help monitor ESG considerations

We take advise from consultants employed for each of our investments. This includes lawyers to provide advise on governance, technical advisors to help advise on procurement (where relevant) and environmental advisors to advise on environmental aspects.
