N.Y. Cares Volunteer Day
Each year, Trilantic North America volunteers in the local New York City community through the New York Cares Program. New York Cares is the largest volunteer network in NYC offering thousands of volunteer opportunities with nonprofits and schools in all five boroughs.
Each November, Trilantic North America participates in Movember and raises funds to support men’s health. Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and men's suicide.
N.Y. Cares Coat Drive
Each holiday season Trilantic North America collects coats to donate to the New York Cares Coat Drive. The Coat Drive is a city-wide effort run by New York Cares which aims to collect over 100,000 coats each year and distribute them to New Yorkers who need them most in the colder months.
Trilantic North America is committed to the evaluation of Environmental, Social and Governance (“ESG”) risks and considerations within our own business, and as an essential component of creating and maintaining value for our investors, portfolio companies and community. In an effort to promote and support ESG best practices, Trilantic North America has developed the following ESG guidelines:
Foster a culture of teamwork, diversity and inclusion, with zero tolerance for discrimination of any kind, including gender, race, nationality, socioeconomic status, immigration status, religion, sexual orientation or disability;
Remain dedicated to the health and safety of our employees;
Continue to offer opportunities for career growth and mentorship at Trilantic North America;
Encourage our employees and portfolio companies to participate in volunteer work and charitable giving by organizing firm-wide volunteer days, as well as coordinating annual fundraisers for causes we believe in and that affect our communities;
Maintain policies and procedures that promote high standards of ethical conduct, including best practices on anti-bribery and anti-money laundering procedures, and continue to abide by all applicable legal requirements and regulations;
Consider ESG issues as part of Trilantic North America’s pre-acquisition investment due diligence process;
Emphasize the responsibility we believe we have to consider how we and our portfolio companies impact communities and human rights, prohibiting investments in companies known to be associated with child or forced labor or other discriminatory practices;
Remain committed to proper governance structures within our portfolio companies, and use our voice as board members to promote ESG initiatives and create, enhance or support strategic sustainable solutions that we believe will maximize our long-term investment returns;
Actively promote and support diversity within our portfolio companies’ boards and senior management;
Lead by example in practicing the sustainability principles of reduce, reuse, recycle whenever possible, and encourage those around us to do the same.
To oversee the execution of our ESG initiatives within our firm and portfolio companies, we have assigned senior members of Trilantic North America to an ESG committee, who will identify and communicate key ESG issues firm-wide, provide resources and training, including access to vetted outside consultants where appropriate, and regularly update this ESG policy to reflect changes in industry best practices or changes in laws or regulations.
