Implementing Melrose ESG values – our decentralised approach
We encourage, support and invest in our businesses to implement the following Melrose ESG principles and contribute to a sustainable future, as further detailed in our ESG report:
- Respect and protect the environment.
- Purposefully engage with key stakeholders to better understand and deliver on their expectations.
- Prioritise and nurture the wellbeing and skills development of employees and the communities that they are part of.
- Exercise robust governance, risk management, and compliance.
We implement secure pension scheme funding, operational and financial best practice, and lead in promoting diversity and neutralising our carbon footprint. We invest in our businesses to bolster their research and development capabilities, to enable them to help their customers meet their environmental objectives, and help ensure the safety of their end-users. We encourage our businesses to champion the interests, safety and skills development of their employees. We instil our values through best practice policies, training, and internal controls, supported by renewed management and governance structures. Our businesses’ executive management teams are empowered to implement the necessary measures to improve ESG performance, by leveraging their understanding of what their respective stakeholders require.
Sustained, positive ESG performance
The success of our “Buy, Improve, Sell” model relies on building better businesses that are positioned to prosper over the longer term. The ESG improvements that we promote and encourage among our businesses benefit from our long-term view, and are underpinned by our focus on conducting business with the highest standards of integrity, honesty, and transparency.
By implementing a stronger culture of operational and financial improvement, we rebuild our businesses’ resources and capabilities, and enable them to pursue commercially attuned ESG improvement initiatives.
