ESG is integrated across firm operations with Board level oversight.
As ESG is integrated into our core operations, from the investment evaluation stage, the person in charge of investment takes the lead in identifying the ESG issues inherent in the target company, improving them during the investment period and raising the economic value of the company by the time of exit. This process is supported by the ESG support team.
Post investment, a member of portfolio company management is assigned responsibility for ESG performance in the company. Unison works together with our portfolio companies, as necessary, to implement relevant ESG initiatives.
To improve and maintain ESG performance across portfolios, the ESG support team conducts monitoring of portfolio companies in addition to providing support to Unison investment teams.
