PE 01. Description of approach to RI (Private)

PE 02. Investment guidelines and RI

02.1. Indicate whether your organisation’s investment activities are guided by a responsible investment policy / follow responsible investment guidelines.

02.2. Describe how your organisation outlines expectations on staff and portfolio companies’ approach towards ESG issues in investment activities.

ESG forms an integral part of Foresight's normal day to day decision making, investment process, portfolio management and investor reporting. To guide this approach, Foresight has adopted an ESG policy that sets out the company's key principles, the scope and focus of the policy as well as the governance and implementation of ESG matters both internally and externally. The policy has recently been updated to reflect the progress made at both a group level and within the private equity team within the last 12 months, as well as our alignment to the Sustainable Development Goals.

Foresight regularly conducts formal training for staff in sustainability related issues, including running Best Practice sessions. To ensure best practice and alignment, each investment team member is required to sit an ESG compliance test. All members of the investment team also have ESG objectives incorporated within their annual performance appraisals
