ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) and ethical considerations are integral to our investment decisions and how we operate as a firm. We focus on four key areas: Governance, Workers, Community, and Environment. We have developed an ESG Framework which highlights the main issues in these areas for the types of business that we invest in.
CGE are honoured to partner with Matchable, a platform which matches employees with innovative volunteering opportunities, enabling our team to use their skills to have maximum impact on the causes they care about.
CGE are proud to be a signatory to the UN Principles of Responsible Investment (UNPRI) and the Initiative Climat International (iCI). We are committed to continuously improving our ESG standards to deliver sustainable growth responsibly.
At CGE we aim to reduce the environmental impact of our travel and of our use of energy and other resources. Since our launch we have run on 100% renewable energy, and have been certified Carbon Neutral+ by Carbon Footprint by offsetting at least double our firm’s verified CO2 emissions.
