PE 02. Investment guidelines and RI

02.1. Indicate whether your organisation’s investment activities are guided by a responsible investment policy / follow responsible investment guidelines.

02.2. Describe how your organisation outlines expectations on staff and portfolio companies’ approach towards ESG issues in investment activities.

Partners Group's (PG) RI policy specifies that relevant ESG issues are to be considered throughout the investment process and that our corporate governance - predominantly as a control investor - shall be leveraged to enhance ESG performance at our portfolio companies.

Our RI policy is issued by the Executive Committee and its guidance is executed by our ESG team, the larger Industry Value Creation team, and our investment teams. Within 100 days post-acquisition, PG conducts an ESG onboarding with senior management at each portfolio company. The onboarding covers PG's responsible investment history, standard ESG practices, case studies of ESG projects, as well as relevant reporting requirements. This is followed by annual workshops at the portfolio assets where PG reviews the previous year's ESG projects and discusses the projects for the following years. The workshops are attended by senior management as well as relevant personnel involved in various ESG initiatives, and the agreed ESG projects and targets are communicated back to the Board through PG Board members. Progress on these ESG projects and targets are reviewed by the ESG team and company management quarterly.
