Sustainability and people priorities

It is crucial for us to understand, prioritise and report on the issues that matter most to our business and our stakeholders. Focusing on our most material issues will underpin our long-term success.

Engaging stakeholders

ICG Board considers the following stakeholder groups as being key to our business, and we seek to understand their interests and expectations, which are then factored into our decisions.

  • Shareholders and lenders
  • Clients
  • Employees
  • Communities
  • Environment
  • Suppliers
  • Regulators
  • Portfolio companies

We do this through various methods, including direct engagement, participation in industry initiatives and consultations, and reporting.

Determining our material issues


We assess materiality from two angles, first at a Group level; secondly within our investment activities. We identified the environmental, social and governance issues that are relevant to our industry and company. This included the topics of importance to our clients, shareholders and employees, as well as those that align to our company values and investment ethos.


Additionally, we assessed these topics against the sustainability reporting standards and emerging disclosure regulations, such as the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB), SFDR, the EU Taxonomy and the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), as well as relevant aspects of ICG’s principal risks and uncertainties.

We consolidated our material issues into six priorities
