In making investment decisions, we consider the social impact of the potential portfolio companies. We are always seeking social enterprises that are both profit-driven and rooted in societal improvement. Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) criteria are a set of standards for a company’s operations that socially conscious investors use to screen potential investments. Environmental criteria consider how a company performs as a steward of nature. Social criteria examine how it manages relationships with employees, suppliers, customers, and the communities where it operates. Governance deals with a company’s leadership, executive pay, audits, internal controls, and shareholder rights. We work with our portfolio companies to ensure they are good ESG stewards and lead by example in their local communities.
