As signatories to the UN Principles of Responsible Investment we believe that Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) behaviours and values are critical to the longevity and future success of Perwyn and our portfolio companies.
Through a process of continual improvement, we strive to make a tangible difference throughout the investment cycle that benefits all stakeholders.
“We are privileged to be working in the private equity industry and with that comes responsibility as investors which goes beyond pure profit maximisation. We work with our investee companies on improving a broad set of outcomes, which is also an important contributor to value creation when exiting companies that demonstrate a robust ESG program. Within Perwyn, we ensure that ESG practices are regularly evaluated and improved in our decision-making processes and committees.”
Managing Partner, Perwyn
Perwyn has developed an ESG policy framework that formalises our commitment across our business and ensures we follow best practice, manage risk appropriately and make better, more responsible, decisions.
“Perwyn is committed to ensuring its culture is respectful and inclusive and that this underpins the day-to-day interactions and operations of our business.”
Perwyn is committed to working with its Portfolio Companies to promote its ESG principles and behaviours. We encourage an approach of continual improvement through training, using appropriate tools to measure, plan and develop actions as well as sharing best practice and lessons learned.
We undertake an annual survey of our Portfolio Companies to help us understand progress and, more importantly, to drive action in areas where improvement is possible.
Perwyn will not invest in companies which are known to be in breach of any relevant legal, environmental or other legislative requirements.
