Investing responsibly

Environmental, social and governance (‘ESG’) factors can be an important driver of investment value, as well as a source of risk. That is why we incorporate ESG considerations throughout our investment process to generate long-term, sustainable returns.

The long-term success of ICG Enterprise Trust requires effective management of both financial and ESG factors.

Our approach to responsible investing

Our approach is defined by three key priorities:


Incorporate ESG factors into investment decision making


Partnering with managers who share a similar approach to responsible investing


Better identifying and monitoring ESG risks

Guided by the Responsible Investing Policy and implementation tools and processes of our manager - ICG, we consider ESG factors throughout the investment process and during the period in which we are invested.
