Commitment to Performance and
Azimuth is committed to acting as a responsible investor and has a duty to act in the best long-term interests of the beneficiaries of our Funds. Azimuth firmly believes that environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) factors have a meaningful impact on the value of our investments. Thoughtfully managing ESG can increase absolute returns and the long term sustainability of our business and our portfolio companies while aligning the values of our LPs, our companies, broader society and ourselves.
Azimuth recognizes that reporting and qualitative goals, while important, do not necessarily translate into performance. Instead, Azimuth focuses on measurable, decision-useful ESG data about current and prospective investments and integrates this information into all investment and management decisions, per our internal sustainable investing policy. Furthermore, carbon mitigation performance, currently a Key Performance Indicator (“KPI”) influencing investment decisions will also influence fund outcomes in all future funds raised by Azimuth.
Given the complex and evolving nature of ESG performance, Azimuth is deliberate in utilizing opportunities for collaboration and idea sharing with industry leaders. Azimuth achieves this through initiatives such as: membership in the Stanford Natural Gas Initiative; involvement in the Stanford Global Energy Forum; and as a signatory to the UN's Principles of Responsible Investing ("PRI").
We recognize the responsibility associated with managing scaled capital on behalf of our investment partners and their beneficiaries and strive to ensure that we are aligned in our pursuit of both returns and positive impact.
