OUR COMMITMENT TO GOOD GOVERNANCE, SOCIETY, and THE ENVIRONMENT

 

At L-GAM, we are strongly committed to the values of honesty and integrity, and expect from our officers, employees, and portfolio companies to adhere to a high standard of professional conduct. Additionally, as a proud signatory to the UN’s Principles for Responsible Investment, L-GAM recognizes the importance of environmental, social, and corporate governance issues in our community and society at large.

The L-GAM ESG approach to business is founded upon four key guiding principles:

Environment

We consider the sustainable use of natural resources and the minimisation of detrimental impact on the environment, including green house gas emissions, depletion of natural resources, and the reduction of waste, as key principles guiding our investment philosophy.

Workplace

We are an equal opportunity employer, aiming for fair treatment and mutual respect amongst all employees.

Business Integrity

We strive to achieve the highest standards of business ethics by implementing financial controls, transparency, monitoring, and compliance standards, and by combating bribery, corruption, money laundering, and other malpractice.

Community

We consistently take account of the impact that the companies we invest in have on their local community and seek to ensure that potentially harmful health & safety, environmental, and social effects are properly assessed, addressed, and monitored.
