Triton's Responsible Investment ("RI") Policy sets out formalised guidelines on environmental, social and corporate governance factors. It was developed on the basis of the UN Global Compact Principles, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, the International Labour Organisation Conventions and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.
When drafting the RI Policy Triton has also considered governance standards and guidance on management and reporting of corporate responsibility including: International Corporate Governance Network (“ICGN”) Guidelines on Corporate Governance, Anti-Corruption, Political Lobbying & Remuneration; The Global Reporting Initiative and International Organisation for Standardisation (“ISO”) 26000.
Funds managed by Triton Investment Management Limited (the “Manager”) seek the successful development of the businesses that they invest in and to be prudent stewards of investors' capital.
The key objectives of the RI Policy are:
- to ensure it is a fundamental part of the investment decision making process and that all Triton and West Park personnel are fully trained and cognisant of the RI Policy;
- to reduce risk and enhance value in investment portfolios through focused and consistent consideration and management of ESG issues;
- to identify and manage ESG issues throughout the investment cycle: pre-investment, during ownership and at exit;
- to implement effective governance structures, training programmes and communication procedures at the fund and portfolio company levels;
- to strive for continuous improvement in relation to ESG issues; and
- to communicate to the public Triton's focus on ESG and build that into the firm’s reputation.
