FLC is deeply committed to making a positive social impact through integrating Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) considerations into its investment process and its corporate culture.
As a signatory to the United Nations Principles of Responsible Investment and the Institutional Limited Partners Association’s Diversity in Action initiative, FLC has a formalized commitment to serve as a responsible investor and firm. We seek to partner with private equity sponsors as committed to social responsibility as we are and to impact ESG factors at each portfolio company during the investment process. Similarly, FLC aims to serve as a good corporate citizen by developing a diverse team, holding our people to the highest ethical standards, and favorably impacting the environment and our communities through our personal actions.
FLC establishes deal-sourcing partnership with private equity sponsors that are committed to implementing ESG in their investments and portfolios.
FLC integrates its proprietary ESG Scorecard framework into all investment decisions in order to identify risks and improvement opportunities in each co-investment portfolio company.
FLC employs influence as a minority co-investor to make improvements in identified ESG issues and opportunities at each co-investment portfolio company.
FLC provides transparent, regular communication to its limited partners of its evaluation of and progress on ESG factors across its co-investment portfolio.
Monitoring and Exit
FLC monitors and tracks ESG topics through use of its proprietary ESG Scorecard to ensure improvement on key metrics by the time of each co-investment portfolio company exit.
