A dedicated investment policy
As a responsible investor and in order to meet its commitments, CIC Private Debt adopted an ESG policy. This policy integrates extra-financial issues throughout the investment process, particularly during the pre-investment phase in order to include ESG in the whole decision-making process; but also during the post-investment phase to raise awareness and support the portfolio companies in their own ESG approach.
ESG in our daily lives
