- compliance with international conventions on human rights;
- eliminating the use of child labour;
- developing and supporting employees through structured education, training and skills programmes;
- engaging positively with local communities.
We work with portfolio companies to ensure strong governance is established from the outset.

- upholding high standards of business integrity and behaving with the utmost honesty and transparency at all times.
