Zouk’s key personnel with oversight responsibilities are actively engaged in incorporating and improving its ESG policies and practices on an ongoing basis. We have recently developed and implemented a new Sustainability Impact Assessment methodology to further formalize and systematize the ESG assessment practices that the investment team has been employing to date, drawing on its learnings from previous funds and best market practices. Additionally, Zouk’s key personnel with implementation responsibilities always make sure that new internal and external reporting standards are being continuously refined, in an effort to enhance the visibility of ESG achievements across Zouk’s portfolio. Finally, Zouk decided to hire an external firm, to conduct a third party ESG analysis for our current investment process. By applying a proprietary ESG evaluation and scoring framework, Zouk enables investors to satisfy increasing demand for transparency.
