Foresight and Forethought.
Since our founding Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) considerations have been essential to our investment thesis. BCP seeks portfolio investments with solid environmental practices, strong social policies, and industry-leading corporate governance.
We are committed to our portfolio companies working to reduce energy costs and greenhouse gas emissions; supporting internal diversity, equity, and inclusion efforts; and creating momentum behind charitable giving and community engagement efforts.
Sound ESG practices are essential to building strong companies with reputations for excellence. That includes exploring opportunities to enhance environmental impacts and carbon reduction while protecting returns and delivering infrastructure that improves the quality of life. As long-term investors, it is critical to look ahead for the impact each of our investments make on the economy, people, and the planet.
Engaging Diversity and Inclusion.
We are committed to building and maintaining a diverse team of professionals cultivated from varied backgrounds and experiences. Capitalizing on the talents of each team member contributes to our overall success. We pursue diversity and inclusion through:
- Hiring policies, recruitment and retention records
- Community outreach for an inclusive work environment
- A Chief Diversity Officer to assist portfolio companies in developing and maintaining a diverse workforce and team
Looking Out for Communities.
Health, safety and social issues are important to the various communities in which we invest. We strive to have our companies:
- Deliver net zero utility solutions
- Promote environmental responsibility
- Develop and protect their workforce and community
- Build resiliency and disaster response solutions
This committee evaluates and monitors portfolio companies’ progress with ESG objectives and reporting.
