Responsible Investment

Environmental, Social and Governance Policy

The Board has endorsed the Manager’s policies to invest OCI’s funds in a socially and environmentally responsible manner.

Oakley recognises that sustainability and environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) factors are increasingly integral to the operations and offering of the businesses that Oakley invests in, as well as for Oakley itself. Individuals and society as a whole are demanding more transparency of how the products and services they choose to use impact society and the environment.

At Oakley we believe that investing responsibly will protect and create value, beyond the standard drivers of compliance and risk management. We recognise that ESG factors impact our investments. We also believe that identifying, assessing, and managing these factors as part of our investment process will help to create more successful, resilient, and sustainable businesses, which in turn will generate enhanced value to society more broadly.

We are committed to investing responsibly and have been a signatory to the United Nations sponsored Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), and its Six Principles, since 2016. The Principles, as outlined below, have been incorporated into Oakley’s business processes and practices.

  • Incorporating ESG issues into investment analysis and decision-making processes;
  • Being active owners and incorporating ESG issues into ownership policies and practices;
  • Seeking appropriate disclosure on ESG issues by the entities in which investments are completed;
  • Promoting acceptance and implementation of the principles within the investment industry;
  • Working together to enhance effectiveness in implementing the principles; and
  • Reporting on our activities and progress towards implementing the principles.

Based on the sectors Oakley primarily invests in, we have identified the ESG topics which are most often relevant to our investments. This is our starting point when assessing ESG during due diligence, when engaging with our portfolio companies, and when defining our firm-wide ESG priorities.

Diversity & Inclusion

OCI recognises the benefits that diversity can bring to its Board, and places great importance on ensuring that Board membership reflects diversity of all kind. The Board believes that a wide range of experience, age, background, perspectives, skills, and knowledge allows Directors to share varying perspectives and insights, which helps create an environment of effective decision making.

The Board supports Oakley’s endeavours in relation to diversity and inclusion. Additionally, the Board recognises the importance of leading by example on and encouraging board diversity as it relates not only to OCI, but also to the composition of Oakley Fund portfolio company boards.
