Describe how your organisation outlines expectations on staff and portfolio companies’ approach towards ESG issues in investment activities.
During the initial investment process we ask companies to answers an ESG Questionnaire, which is analyzed by the responsible deal teams and included in the Investment Proposal. This will then be discussed in the Investment Committee. After the investment and during the holding period, we will perform annual ESG Questionnaire updates for all portfolio companies, on which we report to certain LP's that like to receive such updates. This is closely monitored by the respective deal teams who will notify the Investment Committee if there is any issues arising.
