The Firm has engaged DNVGL Business Assurance Advisors to complete comprehensive ESG studies for two of our current investments and we intend to perform similar studies on future investments. Additionally, the Firm looks to guidelines provided by non-government organizations related to ESG matters for input on best practices. For environmental issues, the Firm utilizes guidelines set by CDP and The Nature Conservancy. The Firm has also consulted with Paul Douglas, a Minnesota based climate change expert, regarding climate change issues. For social issues, the Firm receives input from Lyman Doran, its recruiting adviser and follows external guidelines such as those set by the United Nations Global Compact. For governance matters, the Firm follows guidelines such as those set by the CFA Institute in its Code of Ethics and Standards of Professional Conduct.
