Describe how this information is reported to, considered and documented by the Investment Committee or similar.
Before undertaking any investment, we complete comprehensive due diligence which includes material ESG issues identified for each investment by having both internal and external subject matter experts who possess relevant competence conduct assessments of risks and value creation considered from the initial due diligence stage to the final Investment Committee process. All Investment Committee members attend a firm-wide weekly meeting to discuss new investment opportunities and the status of current portfolio companies. The members of ESG Committee also attend those meetings and provide opinions from the perspectives of not only any applicable laws but also a variety of ESG assessment framework. ESG-related issues that are discovered during the due diligence process are discussed throughout the investment process from the initial weekly meeting through the Investment Committee meeting. ESG issues considered, findings, and next steps if any, are documented for internal use.
