Each member of staff, regardless of department, is trained in our house approach to RI as part of their induction process.
Every year, we hold a firm-wide training day, encompassing refresher training (and insight from our horizon scanning) on RI and ESG matters.
Our RI policy is reviewed and renewed annually; signed off by our Managing Partner.
This policy is available via our website, and through our intranet - 'Nexus'.
At strategy days, our Partners will emphasise the importance of ESG to our firm, to our LPs, and therefore the expectations from staff.
Every new portfolio company is issued with a letter from our Managing Partner, dedicated to and specifically highlighting the importance of RI and ESG to NorthEdge, and requesting their support in its integration at portfolio company level.
The NorthEdge Board representative is then tasked with following up to integrate our ESG approach through active ownership, utilising our ESG tools developed in-house, which they are trained to utilise at their disposal.
