For 3i, corporate responsibility is about being a responsible investor, as well as a responsible company. We take responsibility for our actions, carefully consider how others will be affected by our choices and ensure that our values and ethics are integrated into our formal business policies, practices and plans.
Our approach to corporate responsibility and our business model is underpinned by our values of ambition, courage, responsibility, collaboration and integrity which together commit us to doing the right thing in the right way.
We believe that companies with high environmental, social and governance standards (“ESG”) are typically better run, have fewer business risks and ultimately deliver better value.
We are signatories to the UN Principles for Responsible Investing (“RI”)and have embedded RI policies and procedures in our investment and in our portfolio company review processes.
