The Apax philosophy is that responsible investing should be embedded within the day to day activities of each and every investment team member and not carved out to a team of dedicated responsible investment staff as this would move the Responsible Investment responsibility away from the investment team who are ultimately responsible for the overall performance of the Apax Funds portfolio companies (including ESG performance).

The Apax sustainability committee which consists of 8 members drawn from different areas within the firm oversees all activities related to responsible investment and ensures that the Apax RI policies and processes are implemented and adhered to. In addition there is one member of staff who is responsible and accountable for the oversight and implementation of responsible investment.
