Responsible Investing

As a responsible investor, it is our duty to ensure that our actions address emerging risks and opportunities towards a sustainable future.

  • For True North, commitment to the Environment, Governance and Social (ESG) framework is synonymous with doing business “The Right Way” and building a strong and enduring foundation for success. We believe this would help build a culture of excellence in each partner company and fulfill our vision of creating universally admired and socially responsible businesses.
  • We formally embarked on our ESG journey in 2018 when we adopted a comprehensive policy framework for True North Fund VI. In 2020, we have committed ourselves to leading global standards and frameworks through our Responsible Investment Policy.
  • In October 2020, the firm became a signatory to United Nations supported Principles of Responsible Investment.

True North recognizes that risks arising out of climate change are real and imminent. Therefore, the endeavour and commitment is to both – work towards reducing the carbon footprint of our operations and our partner companies. This also includes making our partner companies’ businesses climate risk resilient.

In that endeavour, to set the right precedent, True North has estimated the carbon footprint/inventory of its operations since inception, with the help of PwC. It has taken steps to offset them through carbon credits from projects that serve multiple UNSDGs.

True North has thus become carbon neutral in its operations since its inception.

We started our journey over two decades ago with the “Purpose” of making a difference to society

We said that we will do this by partnering with entrepreneurs and business leaders, who are on the journey of creating conscious and high performing businesses. Towards this objective, it was imperative that we not only have the right intent but also sharply measure if we are truly living by the “right” environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) principles. Hence, being formally admitted as a signatory of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) is a very important milestone in our journey.
