Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Integration
As a mining-focused private equity firm, RCF understands the inherent risks associated with mining. As part of its investment analysis and risk management strategy, RCF integrates ESG matters into its due diligence process and ownership activities, which it believes contributes to the improvement of long-term returns and more sustainable businesses.
RCF actively engages with its portfolio companies throughout the investment process and encourages them to implement responsible mining and ESG practices into their business systems. RCF regularly reviews ESG performance and works with portfolio companies to ensure strategies are in place to mitigate ESG risks and recognize related opportunities.
RCF became a signatory to the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) in 2013. RCF continuously works to strengthen and improve its responsible investment practices by working with industry specialists, tracking ESG trends and fulfilling its annual PRI reporting requirements.
