Doing the right thing.
Our role in sustainable investing.

We have always believed in doing the right thing in all our activities to help build sustainable businesses for the long term.

We make sure that we make a positive contribution to society working with our investment portfolio teams and in our own organisation.

We have created our own Sustainable Investment Framework that includes focused practical actions to help people development, society, the environment and positive business disciplines.

  • 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.
  • GCP supports Impetus Private Equity Foundation, which helps to transform the lives of young people from disadvantaged backgrounds by ensuring they get the right support to succeed in school, in work and in life.
  • 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 and are rated A/A in our most recent assessment. 
  • We are an Article 8 Fund under the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation, as a further commitment to promote good business practice across environmental, social and governance matters.
