Permira is a signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). PRI provides a useful framework for progressing the integration of ESG into the investment processes of the Permira private equity funds and the PDM private credit funds.
In 2018/2019, Permira Debt Managers contributed to the development of a new PRI Guide: 'Spotlight on Responsible Investment in Private Credit' (2019). In previous years, Permira was involved in a working group supporting the development of PRI's Guidance on ESG monitoring, reporting and dialogue in private equity (2018). The guide was designed to align GP and LP approaches and expectations on monitoring and reporting.
