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

Together

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

During the due diligence phase of potential investments and during the ownership period, we will incorporate environmental, social and governance considerations, as appropriate.
BCP will encourage the companies in which it invests to consider relevant environmental, social and governance issues, with the goal of improving performance, minimizing adverse impacts in these areas and ultimately providing long‐term sustainability for the benefit of multiple stakeholders.
BCP will continue to remain committed to compliance with applicable national, state, and local labor laws in the jurisdictions in which it invests. BCP will encourage its companies to support the payment of competitive wages and benefits to employees; provide a safe and healthy workplace in conformance with national and local law; and, consistent with applicable law, to respect the rights of employees to decide whether or not to join a union and engage in collective bargaining.
BCP will continue to respect the human rights of those affected by its investment activities.
BCP will seek to use governance structures that provide appropriate levels of oversight in the areas of audit, risk management and potential conflicts of interest.

BCP will continue to maintain strict policies that prohibit bribery and other improper payments to public officials consistent with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act and similar laws in other jurisdictions in which it invests.

BCP will work toward enhanced reporting on its ESG activities and progress and will seek appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the companies in which it invests, in order to foster transparency.
