Our approach to ESG



How we approach ESG

We are growth investors, and we back businesses at critical stages in their lifecycle. This gives us the opportunity to drive positive change, not just in terms of performance but also in the environment and society in which we operate.

We want to help businesses do good and grow faster and we believe sustainable, resilient businesses deliver superior returns and a better society.

When we invest, we invest to grow. Bridgepoint looks to support strong-performing, good quality, well-managed businesses that have the potential to flourish, either via international expansion, operational improvement, acquisitions or through a combination of all three.

But that’s not all we look for. The 30 million beneficiaries of Bridgepoint funds want us to generate attractive returns in a manner they can be proud of. From the outset, this is what we have strived to achieve.

Since Bridgepoint was founded in 1985, our ambition has remained consistent:

To create lasting and sustainable positive impacts

Beneath that ambition lie four key ESG beliefs that guide our investment decision-making:

  1. We believe we must invest in our world.
    Environmental action is ushering in a new era of innovation, productivity and sustainable growth. Climate change represents both an investment risk and opportunity.

  2. We believe in the power of the individual.
    By bringing diverse teams together that reflect the world in which we live in, we can deliver better performance.

  3. We believe that business can and should be a force for good.
    Growing businesses should benefit the communities in which they operate.

  4. We believe well-governed businesses perform better and are more resilient.
    Structure, accountability, effective decision-making, performance monitoring – all enable sustainable success for all stakeholders
