E&S Management System

Lacan integrates ESG aspects in all stages of the investment decision and through its funds´ cycles. From the early stages of investment origination and selection, criteria such as no deforestation and exclusion list are applied. A thorough due diligence is conducted on all eligible properties, including environmental and social aspects and a certification evaluation.

Once the investment has been approved and implemented, monitoring begins, which also includes environmental and social indicators. These indicators follow internationally recognized standards such as GRI, GHG Protocol and FSC. Lacan is expanding the monitoring of the E&S aspects of the funds to incorporate other voluntary sustainability standards, such as IRIS+ and TNFD.

Lacan is a signatory of PRI and this process of integrating E&S aspects into the entire investment cycle of the funds is being developed and implemented following the IFC Performance Standard on Environmental and Social Sustainability.
