Our ESG Policy
With its long held strategy of acquiring well managed high quality businesses, Charterhouse appreciates that the long term financial success of its portfolio companies can be positively influenced by robust management of environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) opportunities and risks.
Charterhouse became a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment initiative in 2013.
Charterhouse has established an ESG committee to implement its ESG policy and to ensure the integration of ESG considerations throughout the investment lifecycle. During the investment process, we seek to understand and account for material ESG opportunities and risks that a business is exposed to prior to making an investment decision.
Charterhouse and its portfolio companies have always sought to conduct their businesses in accordance with the highest ethical standards. Charterhouse will continue to support and encourage management teams to actively address the key ESG opportunities and risks facing their businesses.
Whilst Charterhouse recognises that the majority of value enhancement opportunities lie with its fund portfolio companies, Charterhouse seeks to reduce its own environmental impact and contributes to society through discrete programmes including the Charterhouse Charitable Trust (registered charity no. 210894).
