Glennmont's PPM for its latest Fund sets out the following, amongst other statements on responsilble investment:
"Fund III’s investments will seek to generate clean power and improve energy efficiency, lowering CO2 emissions and potentially reducing the pace of climate change. Social and economic development can be enhanced by investing in clean energy assets and projects that provide electricity and power to meet consumer demands."
"Glennmont’s Approach to Environmental, Social and Governance Processes (“ESG”). ESG initiatives are at the heart of Glennmont Partners’ investment process across the full cycle. During the pre-investment evaluation stage full environmental regulatory compliance assessments are performed. Post investment Glenmont actively manages for ESG factors by setting and monitoring health and safety standards and continuously managing the impact of its operations on the environment. The positive impact on the environment and the reduction of carbon emissions are measured and reported. Glennmont is also committed to the central role of its clean energy assets as an active member of local communities. Examples of Glennmont’s work in this respect include supporting a municipal building’s conversion to be carbon neutral in south Portugal, and school visits and museum funding in Italy. Glenmont’s engagement with ESG initiatives is also illustrated by its being a signatory, as an investment manager, of the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). Glennmont implements the Principles in its business model on a daily basis. For instance, the monitoring of health and safety and environmental standards is part of Glennmont’s incorporation of ESG issues into its ownership procedures while the investment into clean energy generation assets is part of the incorporation of ESG factors into investment analysis."
