It is a pleasure to announce that EQT has filed its first RI Transparency Report according to the new PRI Reporting Framework.
EQT has been a signatory to the UN PRI (United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment) since December 2010. As a signatory, it is mandatory to report on its progress towards implementing the Principles. It is also mandatory to make a subset of the reported information publicly available. EQT, being a strong promoter of transparency, has decided to make all its responses in the report publicly available.
The RI Transparency Report 2013/14 focuses on EQT's overarching approach to responsible investment and its activities within the EQT Equity and EQT Mid Market investment strategies in particular. The EQT Infrastructure and EQT Credit investment strategies have also been included, but less detailed in the ‘Overarching Approach’ module. The detailed activities of the EQT Infrastructure investment strategy will be added in the coming years, once UN PRI has finalized the reporting module for the Infrastructure asset class. For Private Debt, there is currently no asset class module to report on in the PRI Reporting Framework.
