We are pleased to announce that Bridges Ventures have been awarded a commendation at the inaugural BVCA Responsible Investment Awards, recognising private equity and venture capital companies who have made a notable commitment to the responsible investment agenda.

The awards, presented by Boris Johnson, the Mayor of London, at the BVCA Summit in Central London on 13 October were judged independently by a panel of institutional investors and looked at how the nominated companies have successfully integrated environmental, social and governance (ESG) good practices into their own operations and into their investing and portfolio activity.

The judging panel felt that the manner in which Bridges Ventures has consistently created both commercial returns and long-lasting social benefit was worthy of a special commendation.  The high level of engagement Bridges has with its portfolio companies and the unique responsible investment methodology that it has developed were also deciding factors.

Doughty Hanson & Co was the recipient of the overall award and KKR was also awarded a commendation.   BC Partners was also recognised for the actions that they have taken in recent months to embed a structured responsible investment framework.
