Environmental, Social & Governance

At GCP we are committed to promoting responsible and sustainable practices across our own investment procedures and throughout our portfolio.

We recognise the importance of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors, not only in ensuring that we operate in the right way and positively impact our wider surroundings, but also in enhancing portfolio returns and driving value for our investors.

- We are committed to ensuring that we invest in a socially responsible manner, from pre-investment screening though to proactive, post-deal management

- Each portfolio business has a Board member tasked with championing ESG issues to ensure that environmental, ethical and social issues remain at the heart of everyday thinking

- We are committed to ensuring that, when we act for our investors, it is in their best financial interests but also balances sustainability considerations

- We are a signatory to the UN Principles of Responsible Investment
