Responsible investment practices have been integral to Audax Group’s investment strategy and deeply embedded within its culture since the firm’s founding.
We believe sound ESG practices improve performance while promoting a positive impact on society and the greater environment. We embrace and integrate ESG factors into our investment strategy and believe doing so enhances our ability to build better businesses and create value.
Consider relevant environmental, safety, and social issues associated with target companies when evaluating whether to invest in a particular company or entity, as well as during our holding period.
Seek to grow and improve the companies in which we invest for long-term sustainability.
Attract, develop, and support the best talent from the broadest universe possible, and nurture a culture of inclusiveness that enables team members of different genders, races, ethnicities, and social backgrounds to contribute and excel.
Remain committed to compliance with national, state, and local labor laws with respect to workplace safety, data privacy, and cybersecurity.
Maintain policies that prohibit bribery and other improper payments to public officials consistent with the U.S. Foreign Corrupt Practices Act.
Provide timely information to our limited partners, and work to foster transparency about our investment activities.
To the extent practicable, encourage portfolio companies to advance ESG principles in a way that is consistent with their duties to stakeholders.
We believe teams with diverse knowledge bases, perspectives, and experiences combat groupthink and empower innovation to help us deliver attractive returns to our investors.
Audax' Diversity Working Group (“DWG”) spearheads DEI (“Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion”) initiatives across our organization. The DWG includes a cross-section of Audax employees.
Audax is committed to cultivating and advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion across our firm and the businesses with which we partner. Diversity, equity, and inclusion are foundational to attracting and retaining the best people, and the best people are foundational to our success.
