LFG Capital Partners utilizes a strategic, fact-based and diligence-driven investment approach that by definition includes a multitude of environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations. We believe that these ESG practices lead to better investment outcomes while considering the firm’s broader impacts on the environment and society.
LFG's Commitment to Responsible Investing
LFG believes the management of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues is a critical part of ensuring the long-term success of any business today. Building better businesses through effective ownership and management benefits all stakeholders, from employees to customers, suppliers and shareholders, and the wider community at large by creating jobs, supporting local communities and securing the future of millions of people around the world. As careful stewards of capital, LFG is committed to operating with the upmost integrity and working hard to manage ESG factors from our due diligence processes, during the management of our investments and in ongoing support.
We believe our medium- to long-term ownership model, our operational capabilities and our commitment to building better businesses enable us to be a responsible custodian of the businesses in which we invest.
Our approach towards ESG is embedded in all aspects of our private equity investment process from the original investment selection, to the subsequent value creation and ultimately, the exit from the investment with a focus on ensuring a sustainable long-term ownership structure into the future.
LFG’s Commitments to Responsible Operations
LFG also strives to embed effective ESG practices in its own operations.
LFG commits to:
Supporting ethical behaviours in its activities. All LFG employees are subject to, and receive training on LFG policies, including LFG’s Code of Ethics. All employees are required to acknowledge they have received, read and understood and agree to comply with LFG policies upon joining and on a quarterly basis.
Investing in local communities. LFG supports venture philanthropy charities that focus on helping young people and disenfranchised members of society integrate themselves into society. Venture philanthropy combines pro bono expertise with capital to an agreed business plan and therefore has close affinity to the private equity community.
Promoting diversity in the workplace. LFG is an equal opportunities employer and we respect the diversity of our people. Our employees are the “best of the best” who use their initiative, good judgment and creativity to drive superior performance for LFG and our portfolio companies. Our aim is to attract, motivate, develop, and retain a diverse talented group of people who make informed career and life style choices within a supportive working environment.
