Equitix believes that environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria materially affect the value of portfolio companies. Robust governance, combined with the active management of environmental and social responsibilities enables the reduction of risk and the creation of lasting value.
For this reason, ESG objectives and initiatives form an essential part of the Equitix investment process and they are consolidated into its investment papers. Our aim is to provide value for money and generate growth in local economies by maximising local investment, creating improved community services and better reporting for our investors.
Through its involvement in Hub South West Scotland – a public-private partnership between Equitix and Lanarkshire, Ayrshire and Dumfries & Galloway – Equitix is dedicated to engaging with the local supply chain in these communities to create positive outcomes. The partnership offers apprenticeships and work placements and runs various programmes aimed at improving the local supply chain and providing contract opportunities.
Equitix is a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) and the UK Sustainable Investment & Finance Association (UK SIF).
