Sustainability is integrated into our investment process

CVC sees Sustainability as an important part of our value creation and risk management approach to build a better business and create sustainable value. We have developed frameworks to integrate Sustainability into our investment processes across all seven investment strategies.

CVC recognises that proactively incorporating material sustainability factors with CVC’s own operations, as well as in our investment approach, ultimately contributes to the long term success of our business and the investments we make.

Sustainability is considered across the stages of the deal life cycle

From initial screening and due diligence to exit, we integrate Sustainability to support decision-making at each stage, where relevant and appropriate.

This involves integrating Sustainability considerations into our investment thesis, incorporating Sustainability factors into due diligence, and engaging with portfolio companies to drive Sustainability improvements during the holding period.

Monitoring and ongoing engagement

CVC's Value Creation framework (as pictured on the right) ensures a consistent approach to engaging and partnering with portfolio companies and investments on sustainability topics.

Our four pillar reporting programme aims to measure progress against each priority area, focusing on what is most material for a particular business.
