At NorthEdge we are committed to continually improving ESG performance – in our business, across our portfolio and in our industry. Therefore, we have been delighted to see these efforts recognised externally in the last couple of months, receiving special recognition from the BVCA at the ESG in Excellence Awards, which recognises firms that have made an outstanding commitment to ESG principles, and being shortlisted for two other ESG awards.
Real Deals ESG Awards
- ESG (Small Cap)
Women in Investment Awards
- Lucie Mills – Sustainable & ESG Investment Woman of the Year
This follows us achieving fourth place in the ESG Transparency Index out of the 155 BVCA-registered Private Equity firms that were assessed earlier in the year. We were proud to be the only lower mid-market private equity firm featured in the top ten, demonstrating our culture, behaviours and processes are consistent with those of much larger managers.We believe that this demonstrates our commitment to making a positive impact on our people, portfolio and the communities we operate in, and recognises our consistent and rigorous approach to responsible investing over the last ten years.
Lucie Mills, Partner, Value Creation & ESG at NorthEdge, said: “It’s great for our team to be recognised externally for their hard work and continued focus on building better businesses. Regardless of the results, we are delighted to have been recognised for our efforts, as we continue with our mission to make a positive impact with every investment we make.”
