At Sun European, we are proponents of Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) practices and seek ways to integrate them, as deemed appropriate and consistent with our fiduciary duties, into our own investment practices, and encourage our portfolio companies to do the same. We believe there is a clear benefit to better ESG management, and we believe we can do well by doing good.
At Sun European we endeavor to act as a responsible corporate citizen, to our employees, our portfolio companies and our communities. Sun European affiliates initiated its ESG Program in 2012, and since then has sought to enhance our ESG practices. The ESG Committee, which reports to our Executive Committee, provides oversight and updates to our ESG policy and program.
We are committed to engaging our portfolio companies regarding their ESG practices. Sun European affiliates have a Senior Leadership Summit approximately every 18 months. During this conference, an internal “ESG Excellence” award is given to the portfolio company demonstrating a strong commitment to ESG.
A Social Responsibility Commitment without Borders
As one of our earliest ESG initiatives, we founded The Sun Capital Partners Foundation in 2007. The Foundation serves to enhance Sun Capital’s strong culture of social engagement within the community by making grants to charities all over the country. We’re extremely proud that, since its inception, the Sun Capital Partners Foundation has been able to support more than 700 organizations in meaningful and compassionate pursuits. The Foundation’s mission remains closely tied to the Sun Capital Partners culture of integrity, fairness, commitment and passion. To reinforce this connection, charitable contributions by Sun Capital Partners employees are amplified through a 3x matching gift program.
