Draft and publish an ESG policy

A well-crafted ESG policy guides and articulates how LPs take ESG considerations into account as part of their organization’s investment (and risk mitigation) strategy. Encouraging transparency around these policies helps educate stakeholders about an organization’s ESG practices.

Some LPs have also decided to identify and exclude certain industry sectors which are incongruent with their mission or values as a component of their ESG policy via exclusion lists.
