Disclosures in accordance with Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 Sustainable Finance Disclosures Regulation (the “SFDR”)

Berkshire Partners seeks to ensure that employees are aligned with the firm’s Responsible Investment Policy and adherence to such policy may be considered as part of each individual’s performance assessments. These performance assessments will be linked to and may impact the remuneration of employees.

In relation to the transparency of adverse impacts requirement of SFDR, Berkshire Partners appreciates that the detailed underlying rules in this area merit a thorough evaluation, including ascertaining the availability of the data set expected to be required to report under the new requirements. The position will be kept under review as the underlying rules are finalized. In the meantime, it is not possible for Berkshire to consider the adverse impacts of investment decisions on sustainability factors within the meaning of the SFDR. Nonetheless, ESG considerations continue to be integrated into Berkshire’s investment process as outlined in our Responsible Investment Policy.
