Infrastructure

Vantage has developed a comprehensive ESG Management System (“ESGMS”) that documents the policies and procedures for incorporating ESG into each stage of the investment life cycle. The ESGMS is in compliance with IFC Performance Standards and the Code for Responsible Investing in South Africa (CRISA). It has been enhanced through a year-long ESG improvement project undertaken by Vantage with Environmental Business Strategies (a specialist ESG service provider) over 2015/16 and also incorporates input received from our DFI investors.

In summary though, the investment team collectively accepts responsibility for ESG management across the portfolio of investments. The investment team receive extensive on-the-job ESG training as they take deals through the investment life cycle and work with third party ESG service providers at key stages of the process, under the guidance of more experienced deal team members as well as the ESG Manager. In addition, the investment team regularly attends ESG seminars and training sessions as they come up during the year.
