Promoting responsible investment

SG 09. Collaborative organisations / initiatives

09.1. Select the collaborative organisation and/or initiatives of which your organisation is a member or in which it participated during the reporting year, and the role you played.

Select all that apply

Your organisation’s role in the initiative during the reporting period (see definitions)

Provide a brief commentary on the level of your organisation’s involvement in the initiative. [Optional]

Following a busy 2018, during which we drafted and implemented our ESG policy, built/ trained an ESG organization and calibrated our proprietary ESG assessment tool with the help and assistance of our consultant expert Tauw, we continued to further develop our ESG organization in 2019 in line with the UN PRI's recommendation (e.g. ESG now part of our quarterly reporting, set-up a ESG monitoring process and institutionalized ESG side letter-requests).

In addition, we tried to keep in touch with you / UN PRI - e.g. held a call with Dustin Neuneyer in March, met him again at the Sustainable Finance Gipfel Deutschland in September and attended the PRI in Person in Paris.

We look forward to further deepen our relationship with you in 2020 and eventually become a more active member.

Frequency of contribution

Description

          Our professionals consider ESG issues as part of the overall analysis of the prospective investment before making investment decisions. Given that most of our investments are indirect and passive by nature, the most opportune time to influence an investment manager’s principles of operation is when the initial investment decision is made. We expect the portfolio funds and investments to commit to ESG principles, integrate these issues in its investment decisions and report on its ESG performance to investors (formalized/safeguarded by side-letter clauses that we negotiate with every GP ahead of our commitment). ESG issues are discussed in meetings between Golding’s professionals and investment managers also after the investment is made.
        

Frequency of contribution

Description

          Our senior managers frequently participate in or host panel discussions at investment conferences and meetings. Additionally, we are hosting annual general meetings for our own investors during which we update them on ESG matters (e.g. in 2018 we invited the international non-profit "Right to Play" to our AGM).

Example 1: We will chair the ESG panel at the PE Insights Iberia 2020 in Madrid in May.

Example 2: We will invite former European Commissioner for Energy Mr. Oettinger and Sir Paul Collier (British development economist; currently at Oxford University and Director of the International Growth Centre) to our AGM in June 2020.

Note: both events are planned for summer 2020 and might change in light of the ongoing Covid-19 situation.

Description

          We encourage both our investors as well as the investment managers we invest with to act responsibly.
