Responsibility | HGGC

HGGC takes seriously our fiduciary duties to our investors, seeks to act in the long-term interest of our investors, and endeavors to maximize risk-adjusted returns for our investors and other stakeholders by investing responsibly.

We believe that companies with environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) standards are typically better run, have fewer business risks, and may ultimately deliver better value.

We seek to integrate assessments of ESG into our investment analysis and decision making, as appropriate, because we believe it leads to successful, sustainable, and replicable results.


The purpose of HGGC’s Responsible Investment Policy is to define our approach to managing ESG factors across all potential investments, portfolio companies, and at the firm level, as well as to provide a framework for all stakeholders to understand the ways in which ESG factors are integrated across the firm’s operations.

ESG Governance and Oversight

Responsibility for ESG oversight, accountability, and implementation rests at various levels within the firm under the guidance of HGGC’s ESG Committee. The ESG Committee is responsible for overseeing the firm’s ESG initiatives and typically reviews HGGC’s Responsible Investment Policy annually and updates it as it deems necessary.

Our DEI Statement

At HGGC, we believe that we build value together as teams and committees, not as individuals. We believe that companies built on diverse backgrounds and insights are better run and should deliver more successful results. Therefore, we believe diversity, equity, and inclusion are central to our core values and how we seek to do business.

HGGC endeavors to pursue a diverse, equitable, and inclusive environment. We approach this work across an expansive spectrum, and our focus on DEI is intended to impact the broader HGGC eco-system, from our investors, to our affiliated portfolio companies, and to the communities within which HGGC has built and developed relationships.

HGGC seeks to recruit and retain diverse talent by nurturing a differentiated culture that we believe embraces belonging, inclusion, and transparency, where all backgrounds and perspectives are welcomed and encouraged. HGGC is a long-time sponsor of diversity-focused community engagement opportunities through partnerships it has cultivated.

We believe diversity, equity, and inclusion are not just words – they are words we strive to live by in all we do.
