Double Columns ESG

"We are investing for longer term horizons, seeking to generate significant capital gains for investors. This means we must make investments that are sustainable. We firmly believe that strong ESG practices not only benefit the environment and society but also contribute to long-term value creation for our investors."

Ken Terry

CEO, Elysian Capital




Our working principles to ensure we invest responsibly are:

  • Continuously integrate ESG matters into our deal process, investment decision and ownership.
  • Identify all relevant ESG risks & opportunities and incorporate them into our investment decisions.
  • Ensure our investment teams understand the reasons, issues and opportunities behind ESG matters.
  • Actively engage with portfolio companies and their management teams to promote and seek better ESG performance.
  • Ensure consistent standards of monitoring and reporting of ESG matters across our portfolio.

ESG performance over time

It’s important to us to share our progress in continually improving ESG in our portfolio.

Since 2020, we have worked with Holtara (Formerly Apex Group ESG Services), using its ESG Assessment & Reporting service to provide ratings and reporting for our investments.

This provides a benchmark against peers and global standards, and drives improvements in businesses’ ESG performance over time.

Also, we use Holtara to conduct an ESG health check on companies as part of the pre-investment process.
