The Pallinghurst Group believes that environmental, social and corporate governance (“ESG”) are essential elements to its success.

ESG plays a vital role in our identification of investments and due diligence processes, and the ongoing management of our investment portfolio. The Pallinghurst Group considers its responsibilities regarding health and safety, environmental impact, community support (via social and economic development) and people within its investment portfolio to be imperative to the overall success of its investments and the ongoing success of the group.

The Pallinghurst Group is a signatory of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (the “Principles” or “UN PRI”) which are committed to a more sustainable and transparent global financial system, whilst also supporting environmental and social issues through a number of initiatives.

There are six Principles which the investment community are committed to uphold, crucially the integration of ESG values into investment analysis, ownership policies and practices, as well as disclosures on ESG issues by companies into which investments are made. The Pallinghurst Group works with the UN PRI to enhance the ongoing effectiveness of these Principles and, as a signatory, must report annually on its activities and progress.

The Pallinghurst Group’s advisor (Pallinghurst Advisors LLP) is authorised and regulated by the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority, ensuring robust principles and regulatory reporting are followed throughout The Pallinghurst Group, which extends to, and includes, anti-bribery and corruption policies and procedures at all levels from The Pallinghurst Group through to all underlying portfolio companies.
