Environmental, Social and Governance Policy
Marguerite is committed to and actively embeds ESG considerations into the investment process for the funds it manages. Marguerite is a signatory to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (the UNPRI) and has committed that it will undertake its investment activities for certain funds it manages consistent with the UNPRI, the Equator Principles III, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises as well as other ESG policies and standards specified by the funds’ investors.
Marguerite will avoid negative impacts on investment-affected ecosystems, communities and the climate where possible. If these impacts are unavoidable, they will be minimised, mitigated, and/or offset to the fullest extent possible. In this regard, Marguerite commits to promoting the principles of sustainable development in its business activities in line with its ESG values:

Establishing and maintaining a Social and Environmental Management System (SEMS) to systematically and demonstrably consider environmental and social aspects in decision-making
Working with and supporting project developers to demonstrate and maintain ESG compliance
Committing to continual improvement in ESG performance
Promoting Social Cohesion
Effective engagement with stakeholders in order to provide meaningful opportunities for their views to be taken into account
Transparency in Business Activities
Promoting transparency by regularly reporting on business activities and progress towards ESG commitments
Seeking appropriate disclosure of environmental and social issues by the entities in which the funds invest
Marguerite commits to abstain from investing in certain excluded activities and where practicable encourage its business partners to apply principles of responsible investment.
