 Ethics and Business Conduct

Community

We contribute to our communities through fundraising, pro-bono advisory, volunteering, mentoring, and financial donations.

Clients

We work very closely with our clients, delivering long-lasting value and supporting them in achieving their sustainability objectives.

People

We are open to sharing skills, experiences, and knowledge with our clients. We have adiverse workforce. However, the values and qualities we all have brought us together to create a solid team.

DiliCapital takes ethics and business conduct seriously.  We continue to provide our staff with the tools and training needed to recognize ethical issues and support open communication and consultation culture.

Today, a solid commitment to ethics in business conduct and an open discussion of its importance are critical to the success of our business. It provides clarity and creates a greater sense of trust by clearly articulating the conduct you can expect from the people of DiliCapital. As our client, you can rely on our commitment to conduct ourselves ethically.

Our business code requires that all our employees respect and promote our principles and exercise good judgment that reinforces our company values as fair, honest, and just in dealings with clients, investors, customers, suppliers, and competitors.

ENVIRONMENT, SOCIAL AND CORPORATE GOVERNANCE (ESG)

We are committed to working with project sponsors and businesses to implement innovative ideas that can protect the environment, promote economic growth and enable social progress in our communities.

In DiliCapital, we believe it is essential to incorporate environmental, social, and governance issues into our corporate strategy and services because the good government and a strong culture of citizenship play crucial roles in our firm's foundation and the future.

 

DiliCapital’s corporate engagement programs harness our employees' extensive involvement and commitment with community non-profit organizations. Some elements of our corporate engagement efforts include:

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

At DiliCapital, we value the diversity of our staff members. We believe that diverse organizations attract and retain higher quality talent while improving decision-making that ultimately benefits our members. We are also convinced that diversity is an integral component of being a long-term oriented, sustainable investor, offering equal opportunities to underrepresented individuals.

 ESG in our Investment  Process

Consideration of ESG issues is an integral part of our investment process, which we have developed to align with our Principle for Responsible Investments.

  • Our investment teams are responsible for taking ESG considerations into account when performing due diligence on a project opportunity.

  • These assessments form an essential input for the Sector Operation Team and investment committees in deciding whether to invest.

  • We then monitor our investments for a wide range of risks, including those related to ESG, and we engage with project sponsors by offering advice on further ESG integration.

  • In addition, we conduct bespoke ESG monitoring for project sponsors to confirm compliance with their specific ethical frameworks.

 

ESG Principles Across Sectors

  • We have developed processes to integrate ESG principles according to the requirements of the various sectors and investment structures.

  • For example, we focus on individual project sponsors, and we have considerably more information available for making an ESG assessment.

  • This has enabled us to develop a proprietary tool known as the “ESG Box” for identifying and assessing the ESG risks and opportunities in these portfolios. 

We also strongly believe in the value of participating in ESG collaborating with peers and ESG professionals to help raise awareness in our industry.
