In 2020, EIP made several public commitments to encourage accountability and transparency of our ESG and impact principles. We became a signatory to the UNPRI, a UN-supported organization dedicated to advancing responsible investment and supporting an international network of investor signatories in incorporating ESG considerations into investment and ownership decisions. We also became a member of Initiative Climat International (iCl), a subgroup of UNPRI specifically formed to work on reducing carbon emissions of private equity-backed companies and securing sustainable investment performance by recognizing and incorporating the materiality of climate risk. EIP is also a supporter of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) as we believe the TCFD recommendations provide a useful framework for increasing transparency on climate-related risks and opportunities within financial markets.

EIP’s ESG policy outlines our firmwide commitment to integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) considerations into EIP’s operations and investment decision making processes.

 

We invest in companies that directly reduce carbon emissions or lay the provide foundation to help our partners accelerate their transformation towards a net zero carbon future
