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 Andrew Honan, Managing Partner (Infrastructure) and Chair of Sustainable Investing,  and includes our ESG Manager as well as 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 became a member of the ESG Data Convergence Initiative in 2023 to help support convergence around meaningful environmental, social, and governance metrics for the private equity industry. We are committed to aligning our ESG data with this important industry-led effort, and support the Initiative’s objective of generating useful, performance-based, comparable ESG data.

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 Ireland volunteers at Feed our Homeless this Christmas
We are proud to have supported Feed our Homeless for our annual charity day this year.

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 2023, we are proud to have supported Feed our Homeless, a charity established in 2017 by co-Founders Tony Walsh and Natasha Morgan in Dublin’s city centre. The charity is dedicated to supporting people affected by homelessness and marginalised by society.

Our whole office came together to spend the day preparing food parcels for families, sorting clothing packs for the evening outreach service, supporting stock rotation in the new storage area in Charlestown and sorting the clothes room. It was a thoroughly rewarding day!

Others offer a fixed perspective.
We create investments made to measure.
