SG 07. RI roles and responsibilities

07.1. Indicate the internal and/or external roles used by your organisation, and indicate for each whether they have oversight and/or implementation responsibilities for responsible investment.


Select from the below internal roles

07.2. For the roles for which you have RI oversight/accountability or implementation responsibilities, indicate how you execute these responsibilities.

Our Investment Committee has developed an ESG Policy, which applies to both our Firm itself and to the Fund's portfolio companies.

Concretely, in 2018:

- the Investment Committee defined and approved our ESG Policy;

- we included ESG considerations in the Value Creation Plan that was developed with and for our portfolio company and have monitored the progress since;

- we defined the tools (checklists, scorecards) required throughout our investment cycle to take ESG considerations into account;

- we made decisions such as starting to report to PRI or becoming signatories of "1% for the Planet";

- we have regular meetings to improve our Firm's organisation and operations in which we discuss, define, implement and improve our modus operandi and ESG practices.

All capital D partners have oversight and implementation responsibilities for ESG matters.

The partners in charge of investor relations do report on ESG matters at least formally on a quarterly basis and have oversight and implementation responsibilities on this ESG reporting.

Finally, everyone in the organisation contributes to ESG related work (eg during a DD, analysts have to carry out specific analyses on ESG matters, such as identifying and interviewing ESG experts).

In 2019:

- we have continued all of the above activities, further refining our approaches and our tools;

- we had quarterly meetings to improve our Firm's organisation and operations in which we discuss, define, implement and improve our modus operandi and ESG practices;

- we ensured we delivered on our commitments, e.g. 1/ measuring, offsetting (through NGOs with 1% for the Planet) and reducing our carbon footprint and 2/ communicating on best ESG practices

- we ensured our portfolio company was delivering against its ESG commitments.

07.3. Indicate the number of dedicated responsible investment staff your organisation has.

0 Number

07.4. Additional information. [Optional]

We don't have sufficient resources yet to dedicate a full-time person to RI. Laurent Nordin is the lead partner for all ESG considerations. All partners are strongly committed to RI and support the collective commitments made by capital D.
