EnCap Investments L.P.
Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance Investment Policy Statement
EnCap believes that a focus on socially responsible investing (“SRI”), which integrates environmental, social and corporate governance (“ESG”) considerations in our business decisions, is essential to creating value for our investors and developing a more sustainable long-term strategy for our funds and portfolio companies.
EnCap believes that it has a moral obligation to play a role in making the world a better place to live through SRI, and that doing so creates a more appropriate risk-return profile for our investments. EnCap works closely with our portfolio companies to build businesses with a like-minded commitment toward ESG issues.
EnCap’s fundamental ESG building blocks can be summarized as follows:
- We encourage and embrace the efficient use of natural resources and continuously look for and expect the best environmental solutions for our portfolio companies’ operations.
- We believe that economic considerations in isolation do not provide sufficient guidance for environmentally conscious decision-making that balances the interests of individuals, communities and future generations.
- We seek to fully comply and/or exceed compliance with applicable environmental regulatory requirements.
- We treat all employees, stakeholders and others who are affected by EnCap’s activities fairly and without prejudice to gender, race, ethnic or national origin, socioeconomic status, age, religion or disability.
- We seek to ensure that EnCap’s underlying employees and portfolio companies comply with the highest ethical standards.
- We believe our activities should not only benefit our employees and stakeholders, but the community as a whole.
Corporate Governance Policy
- We seek to ensure that our business practices comply fully, in appearance and deed, with all applicable laws and regulations.
- We strive to maintain EnCap’s reputation by exhibiting diligence, honesty, fairness and transparency in all of our business dealings.
- We ensure that all portfolio companies have in place appropriate frameworks and measures for corporate governance.
EnCap remains committed to a strong, hands-on approach towards ESG issues to promote a more sustainable society.
