We are responsible investors
Our Responsible Investment Policy and Methodology
Partners Group’s Responsible Investment Policy highlights two reasons for integrating ESG factors into the investment process:
- Enhance investment returns and protect value for our clients.
- Ensure that the companies and assets in which we invest on behalf of our clients respect, and ideally benefit, their stakeholders, society and the environment.
To ensure that this policy is applied consistently, we take a systematic approach to integrating ESG factors throughout the investment cycle in all types of investments and private markets asset classes.
For each investment opportunity, our investment teams are required to identify and consider the relevant ESG factors during due diligence. Partners Group's ESG & Sustainability team supports the investment teams in assessing the weight that should be given to these considerations and in recommending possible courses of action.
During ownership, we initiate projects in our portfolio companies and assets to improve their performance in managing ESG factors and integrate reporting on their ESG performance into our overall client reporting.
