ESG integration

We have pioneered sustainability investing in private equity. We were the first to launch a sustainable private equity program among other private equity managers and our own Responsible Entrepreneurship Guidelines in 2004. Over the years we professionalized our ESG analysis and incorporated it in all stages of our investment process. The core of our ESG framework represents engagement with private equity firms that manage the funds we invest in.
