Helios' ESG Responsibilities
At Helios, environmental, social and governance factors are not a separate consideration.
The imperative to meet high ESG standards is integrated into everything we do, from evaluating each potential investment and conducting diligence, to our role on the board, to the way in which we guide the growth trajectory of a business. As investors, we adhere to the IFC Performance Standards and CDC’s Responsible Investment Management Systems.
We report to our investors regularly on a number of measures, including development indicators. We commission an annual audit that is an independent assessment of environmental, social and governance risks and opportunities, covering our portfolio companies’ adherence to our business principles and the standards we have set.
We believe that companies with strong ESG standards and performance will generate superior financial returns.
