Causeway Capital Partners I LP invests in SMEs with strong growth potential. We have an entrepreneurial approach to portfolio management and seek to accelerate growth through direct equity investment and hands-on management support. We have therefore always considered ourselves to be a responsible investor. ESG issues impact the communities where Causeway and our portfolio companies operate. As a fund manager, Causeway Capital recognises this and is committed to assessing and managing material ESG risks in its decision making, both in relation to pre-investment diligence and portfolio management. We do not expect that all of our portfolio companies will necessarily meet all of the minimum standards immediately following our investment. However, we do expect the executive management team to be fully committed to meeting the minimum standards within a reasonable timeframe and Causeway will support them to do so. 

01.5. Provide a brief description of the key elements, any variations or exceptions to your investment policy that covers your responsible investment approach. [Optional]

Our policy is, to the best of our ability, to:

Comply with all relevant regulations, at Causeway and at our portfolio companies, in the countries in which we operate

Manage and minimise our own direct ESG impacts

Integrate ESG considerations into all stages of the deal cycle –in relation to pre-investment diligence and portfolio management, and also at exit
