PE 05. Incorporating ESG issues when selecting investments

05.1. During due-diligence indicate if your organisation typically incorporates ESG issues when selecting private equity investments.

During our due diligence process, we positively select for companies that have a significant social impact on their suppliers or clients (depending on the sector).  This is a pre-requisite for ALCP to be able to consider an investment. In addition, during the due diligence process, we conduct a full ESG assessment based on a framework developed internally, which incorporates IFC's ESG Performance Standards.
