TDR is pleased to share our 2020/2021 Sustainability Report which details more about our commitment to investing responsibly.
As a long term investor we have always understood that creating the conditions for sustainable growth is fundamental to improving our portfolio companies and delivering returns to our investors. This requires a deep understanding and involvement in our businesses and is facilitated, in our case, by an approach to investing which has always been predicated on substantial engagement with a focused portfolio of companies.
Over the years, as we have all become increasingly aware of the societal and environmental impact of decisions made by our companies, we have increased our support of portfolio companies in several key areas. Across our portfolio companies we have established customised monitoring processes and are working towards better ESG integration and the establishment of net zero roadmaps.
In the last 18 months, the pandemic has shone an even stronger light on the need for a responsible approach to investing. Our priority has been to work with our portfolio companies to protect the health and promote the well-being of employees, many of whom continue to work in challenging circumstances. We have also prioritised working
with the portfolio to improve analysis of climate change impact and promote initiatives to ultimately move to a net zero economy.
