Universally recognised as an early pioneer of responsible investing within private equity, DH believes that a sustainable investment approach is a core component of successful portfolio company management. Good governance and environmental and social engagement (“ESG”) is embedded in the DH approach to active ownership and is viewed as a value creation opportunity.
DH is committed to ensuring that ESG considerations are integral to its own operations and those of its portfolio companies. A wide range of ESG issues are addressed as part of the investment decision-making process, and these issues are actively managed post-investment. By incorporating ESG considerations into investment analysis and ownership practices, DH can create additional value for all stakeholders and reduce the financial and reputational risks to which they are exposed.
