Environmental, Social and Governance Strategy
We recognize the opportunity and responsibility we have to make a positive impact on the world through our business and investment decisions. Our environmental, social and governance (ESG) policy reflects our commitment to creating value for all of our stakeholders and adhering to the highest standards of integrity throughout the lifecycle of each private equity investment.
Emphasis on ESG Commitment
As our commitment towards the environment, we help companies shape their policies to incorporate ESG attributes and help them navigate this new paradigm. We help identify global trends including demographic change, emerging industries, and evolving consumer behavior. Our investment teams are using an ESG due-diligence questionnaire to ensure that all potential risks and opportunities have been considered.
Incorporating material ESG, regulatory, geopolitical, and reputational considerations into CPCP's investment decision-making and management practices, where relevant. This includes considering key risks and opportunities during the diligence process and, where applicable, then engaging on these issues with the companies in which CPCP invests. *We are currently formulating our Responsible Investment Policy.
Monitor and Manage
We include key ESG risks and opportunities in the Portfolio Management Committee discussions and memorandums, where applicable. We work closely with select companies on value creation efforts and record efforts on relevant issues or incidents for ongoing tracking as relevant.
Unlocking ESG opportunities
We incorporate environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles into our portfolio construction. There is ample evidence that ESG factors contribute to business success in the following ways:
facilitating top-line growth
ESG can also drive consumer preference. Portfolio companies with ESG principles achieve higher valuations than competitors. Attracting clients with more sustainable products
Attract talent through greater social credibility and enhance employee motivation by instilling a sense of purpose, and increase productivity overall
