You are in Direct – Private Equity » Pre-investment (selection)
Private equity investments are made as part of our Climate Solutions Funds I and II or Sustainable Solutions Fund III, which have mandates to invest only in businesses which the team judges to be "solutions" according to the Climate Materiality threshold or Sustainability Threshold applied. In addition, the management and business quality of the company is assessed against the same framework that seeks to make a judgment from a long-term perspective and integrate sustainability analysis with financial analysis.
This information is gathered in due diligence and presentation at the IC meeting, where appropriate.
Due to the nature of the private businesses we invest, part of our commitment and skill-set that we offer arises from our sustainability knowledge. Therefore following an investment, this forms a key part of how we add value and manage our investment. We are not seeking to invest in businesses and turn them around. We provide growth capital to businesses so they can scale solutions that we believe they offer to facilitate the transition to a low carbon economy.
Please see previous question. We are not seeking an approach that seeks to turn around businesses post-investment.
