We encourage the operators and management teams of portfolio companies to identify and raise material ESG issues to the relevant decision-makers, including, where appropriate, board-level individuals.
We assist our portfolio companies in the development of action plans to adequately address the identified ESG-related risks and opportunities. Where applicable, this may be part of a 100-day plan. Where appropriate and reasonable, we support our portfolio companies’ efforts to report on their ESG approach and performance as related to material ESG issues. We communicate to portfolio companies our commitment to responsible investment, as well as information on our programs for partnering on ESG issues. As mentioned, we promote sharing of information across assets and platforms through group discussions and leveraging good practices and lessons learned.
