When making control investments, CoMetro undertakes the following additional activities:
- Seek to grow and improve the companies in which we invest through long-term sustainability initiatives, while also considering stakeholders on environmental, social and governance issues. We work through appropriate governance structures (e.g. board of directors) within portfolio companies with respect to environmental, public health, safety and social issues, with the goal of improving performance and minimizing adverse impacts in these areas.
- Seek to use governance structures that provide appropriate level of oversight in the areas of audit, risk management and potential conflicts of interest and to implement compensation and other polices that align the interests of our funds and management.
- Remain committed to compliance with applicable national, state and local laws in countries in which we invest; support the payment of competitive wages and benefits to employees, provide a safe and healthy workplace in the conformance with national and local law; and, consistent with applicable law, respect the rights of employees to decide whether or not to join a union and engage in collective bargaining.
