Our responsibilities

Our primary focus is driving value growth for the businesses we partner with and our investors. However, we also place significant value on supporting the long term sustainability of that growth. 

We have a dedicated ESG Working Group who meet regularly to oversee our policies and approaches, as well as promoting new initiatives. The Group is led by our Chair, Rory Brooks CBE, and includes representatives from across our business and international offices, ensuring a "one MML approach". The Working Group reports directly to our Management Board.

Our investments

We have been a proud signatory of the UN Principles of Responsible Investment since 2019 and are committed to delivering attractive returns for our investors, in a responsible way.

We incorporate ESG analysis as part of our rigorous due diligence process, identifying UN Sustainable Development Goals for each company, which can be monitored throughout our investment period. We ask tailored questions about each business and their ESG credentials, understanding how they operate and the impact they have, which allows us to identify potential risks and plan a route to improve or mitigate those risks during our investment horizon.

We are committed to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment

We exclude certain geographies, sectors and activities in line with the PRI

We conduct ESG due diligence as an integral part of our investment proposals

We monitor the ESG performance of our portfolio companies and report to our LPs

We help our portfolio companies to consider and enhance their ESG performance

We recognise that every investment will be at different stages in their ESG journey, and we work with them, encouraging a collegiate approach to sharing best practise and ideas across our portfolio teams.

MML switches from growing companies to building bikes for the day
It was an absolute pleasure to bring the full MML team together for a charity bike build event last month. Our international offices joined us to help build and donate some brand new, quality bikes for Berkshire Youth and The Wayz Centre in Bracknell.

Our community

A charitable ethos is deep routed in our culture, with many of our team pursuing philanthropic activities outside of work. We also look to supplement these contributions with an annual MML Charity Day.

In 2021, our international teams came together for a charity bike build event, where we built and donated some brand new, quality bikes for Berkshire Youth and The Wayz Centre in Bracknell. The bikes have been given to young people in the community who were facing transport challenges to facilitate their charitable endeavours and local community support. It was a privilege to take part in such a purpose-driven activity, having an immediate impact and supporting a great cause. 

We look forward to planning our 2022 Charity Day!
