07.2. For the roles for which you have RI oversight/accountability or implementation responsibilities, indicate how you execute these responsibilities.

Pantheon has an ESG Committee which is responsible for coordinating our internal and external efforts in this area. The Committee sets Pantheon’s ESG strategy and policy, and provides feedback to the wider firm and externally to our GPs and stakeholders on any ESG issues that arise. The Committee comprise the following professionals:

  • Alex Scott, Partner, European Investment Team;
  • Jie Gong, Partner, Asia Investment Team;
  • Brian Buenneke, Partner, U.S. Investment Team;
  • Jérôme Duthu-Bengtzon, Principal, European Investment Team;
  • Alistair Galloway, Senior Relationship Manager, European Client Service Team; and
  • Martin Golding, Head of Operational Risk, Global Risk Team.

In addition to the committee, we have a wider ESG Working Group which includes additional members of the Investment Team as well as representatives from the Analytics, Client Services and Risk Team. The ESG Working Group is structured with the aim that various areas of the business are represented and can make a contribution to our ESG initiatives. For example, our Client Service Team is responsible for managing communications of ESG incidents to clients and our Analytics Team is responsible for maintaining ESG risk ratings on our investments (with guidance from the Investment Team). Our Risk Team is wholly independent of the Investment Team and oversees both investment and enterprise risk management.

While the ESG Committee and Working Group members are responsible for driving our ESG activities, all our investment professionals are committed to the same goals. Responsibility for implementing our ESG policy rests with all staff.

Pantheon's International Investment Committee ("IIC") also has ESG as a standing agenda item. The committee recieves and reviews reports on ESG implementation, and provides feedback on our processes and objectives.

07.3. Indicate the number of dedicated responsible investment staff your organisation has.
