SG 07. RI roles and responsibilities

07.1. Indicate the internal and/or external roles used by your organisation, and indicate for each whether they have oversight and/or implementation responsibilities for responsible investment.


Select from the below internal roles

07.2. For the roles for which you have RI oversight/accountability or implementation responsibilities, indicate how you execute these responsibilities.

Oversight and implementation is executed through the ESG-I programme. The cornerstones are:

1.   ESG company report (baseline assessment, collection of ESG KPIs, annual follow-up)
2.   Assessment of policies related to ESG followed by the definition of policies to fulfil minimum standards if required
3.   Materiality assessment against relevant UN Sustainable Development Goals
4.   Definition of 1-3 sustainability projects at each company, linked to UN sustainable development goals

To put special emphasis on the ESG topic on portfolio company level, the baseline assessment report is reviewed and signed-off by the portfolio company C-level team and is on the agenda of the Board of Directors meeting at least on an annual basis. SDG projects are approved by the CEO and the Board of Directors of the portfolio company.

In addition, Capvis has board seats in portfolio companies and ESG is on the agenda of the annual participation review, where both Chairman and/or CEO and the investment committee form part of.

07.3. Indicate the number of dedicated responsible investment staff your organisation has.

1 Number

07.4. Additional information. [Optional]

We have spread the responsibilities to a cross-functional group of people. Responsibilities are shared between the value creation, risk management and finance and investor relations team.

External resources are used during the due diligence process. To support the programme rollout during the holding period, we have mandated an external consultancy firm specialised in the sustainability domain.
