Audits (internal and external) and site visits are primarily conducted with the purpose to monitor the ESG status of our portfolio companies and to support the companies in their ESG work, the implementation of Environmental, Social and Governance Action Plan (ESGAP) and improvements to achieve the strategic sustainability goals.
