The Firm

Exponent reinforces the implementation of its Responsible Investment policy by annually reviewing the policy and circulating to all staff. Annual training helps to reinforce our process and principles and ESG is included as part of our Annual Declaration process, where staff confirm they are aware of the Firm's ESG programme.  We also include ESG as part of our onboarding process for new members of the team and have quarterly team discussions on the Firm's progress in this area. 

The Portfolio

Exponent mandates that ESG is included in the 100-day plan for each new acquisition and that ESG is a quarterly board agenda item. We ensure that there is board level oversight for ESG at each company to ensure that the senior management engage with ESG issues, as exemplified by including ESG as part of the Budget presentation that the CEO / CFO deliver annually to the Firm's Partners.
