Corporate Responsibility, ESG and Employee Engagement

As responsible investors we take a proactive approach to social responsibility, governance, sustainability, employee engagement, workforce diversity and, of course, to how we conduct ourselves as a firm and as individuals.
Principles
 

Pantheon invests responsibly today for a sustainable tomorrow. We care about how
and where we allocate capital and believe Environmental, Social and Governance issues shouldn’t be an after-thought. Please click here for further details on Pantheon’s approach to ESG.

As a prominent and sizeable investor in private markets we are well positioned to make a difference and follow this through with active engagement across the GP community and industry trade associations.

We have a long history of engagement with the UNPRI having signed up in 2007. We scored an ‘A+’ rating in the most recent annual assessment by the UNPRI and our commitment to developing a thoughtful approach to ESG has never been stronger.

 

UK Stewardship Code
Although Pantheon is not a signatory to the UK Stewardship Code which is principally focussed on public equity investments, the principles contained within the UK Stewardship Code are akin to Pantheon’s ongoing active engagement with the managers in which we invest. Effective post-investment care and the maintenance of close relationships are important to maximize the value of Pantheon’s fund investments, protect client interests and to evaluate the investment activity within each fund.

Shareholder Rights Directive
Pantheon is currently considering whether it will adopt an engagement policy pursuant to Article 3g of the amended EU Shareholder Rights Directive (Directive 2007/36/EC). When that decision has been made, this webpage will be updated accordingly.
