We recognise the importance of Diversity and Inclusion and ensuring equal opportunity for everyone throughout recruitment, selection, and career development.

To demonstrate our commitment to D&I we have implemented a number of policies, including our Groupwide DEI Policy and Blind Recruitment Policy. We have also committed to tracking and reporting the D&I statistics of our portfolio companies in the year ahead.

For our planet...

We have a number of carbon reduction and resource efficiency measures in our offices including 100% renewable electricity usage, waste is zero to landfill and 44% recycled and our cycle to work scheme encourages green commuting. We also aim to develop a business travel policy given the contribution of business travel to our direction emissions and overall carbon footprint.

We have developed a Climate Strategy, which captures our Scope 1 and 2 reduction targets and portfolio engagement targets in alignment with best practice. We are also committed to offsetting 100% of our Scope 1 and 2 emissions and select Scope 3 emissions. This year, we did this through an accredited peatland restoration project and a UK tree planting scheme certified by the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS).
