It performs due diligence alongside the investment teams, provides ESG inputs into the investment decision and subsequently investment management, and oversees monitoring and reporting. It also advocates for Responsible Investment Principles within the private equity industry.
PAI's Executive Committee is responsible for the approval and the review of PAI's ESG strategy and action plans.
PAI's Investment Committee is responsible for the assessment of ESG factors in investment opportunities: analyses are presented in an ESG memorandum that is discussed at the Investment Committee meeting.
