Acquisitions and divestments

We take care to invest and divest responsibly and screen our transactions against multiple criteria.

Before acquiring or divesting a business, we assess the counterparty’s financial strength; operating culture; policies governing health, safety, security and environmental performance; ethics and compliance; and where relevant, the effectiveness of its social performance programmes.

When applicable, we also share our emission reduction plans for divestments, including how we seek to comply with regulations and implement our commitments, for the buyer’s consideration as they prepare to take over ownership.
