TowerBrook's values stand at the core of our mission and are at the foundation of our belief in responsible ownership. The full text of our Purpose Statement, our Mission Statement, and our Responsible Ownership Statement are publicly available on our website (https://www.towerbrook.com/responsible-ownership/). Our Responsible Ownership Statement covers five Ps: starting from a shared Purpose, we focus on People, Planet and Partnership, all of which contribute to delivering the fifth P: Performance. We consider the five Ps as the foundation of our Handprint as responsible owners. Our Responsible Ownership Statement also covers transparency, and the management of the responsible ownership program.
We identify and consider responsible ownership risks and opportunities throughout our investment process. We are prepared to invest in imperfect businesses in order to help build them into better businesses. There are some areas we specifically exclude: we will not invest in companies whose business involves tobacco, armaments or sexual exploitation, and we will not invest in companies that we know are involved in violations of internationally recognised human rights or exploitative, discriminatory or harmful practices without a plan for remediation. In addition to our commitment to comply with all applicable laws and regulations, we strive to achieve the highest standards of ethical conduct in our own firm and expect our portfolio companies to do the same.
