Responsibility

At Actis, we actively seek opportunities in sectors that address some of the world’s most pressing social and environmental challenges.

A commitment to investing responsibly runs right through our organisation – and creating sustainable value is fundamental to the core operations of the businesses in which we invest. Our portfolio of success stories shows that intelligent investment can be truly transformative: whether through connecting those without electricity to the grid or facilitating access to a university education.

Effective management of Environmental, Social and Governance issues not only reduces risk within a business, it significantly enhances a brand’s value. At Actis, we lead by example and our pioneering approach is proving to be genuinely inspirational, not just within the sectors and geographies where we operate, but across the wider private equity industry.

Actis is a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment, an initiative developed by the UNEP FI and the UN Global Compact.
