CVC recognises its role in the wider world and to the communities in which it operates. A timely example of this is how we, and our portfolio companies, responded to the unprecedented impacts the COVID-19 global pandemic has had on the countries and communities in which we operate. A selection of support initiatives can be found here.

Our Four-Pillar Approach

We have a programme of partnering with our portfolio companies to introduce more comprehensive changes to how they measure, report, integrate and respond to ESG issues. Our four-pillar approach will allow our companies to more efficiently adapt to changing regulatory and stakeholder demands, especially regarding climate change, in their markets. Via this process, we can ensure our companies can achieve long-term sustainable success once we exit.

In addition to our Value Creation Framework, we are also improving how we monitor the progress our portfolio companies are making on implementing ESG protocols and best practice. Through our four-pillar approach, all companies are required to:

  1. begin externally assessing their ESG action plans via EcoVadis,
  2. develop and disclose annual ESG key performance indicators (KPIs),
  3. publish an annual sustainability report, and
  4. set externally validated scienced based emissions reductions targets.

Through undertaking these steps, we can be confident that our portfolio companies can be more adaptable and resilient during the global low carbon energy transition, even after our period of ownership.
