Social Responsibility

Audax Private Equity and our portfolio companies play an integral role in our local communities. We believe that sound environmental, social, and governance practices lead to better investment outcomes while promoting a positive impact on society and the greater environment.
ESG Strategy & Approach

ESG considerations are a significant factor in our investment processes and the operations of our portfolio companies. Alongside our ESG consultants, we evaluate ESG risks and seek opportunities to create value through sustainability initiatives.

We embrace and integrate ESG factors into our investment strategy and believe doing so enhances our ability to build better businesses and create value.
