Responsible investing framework
We have established formal Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) guidelines that we consider in connection with our investment activities. Our approach to the management of ESG considerations is embedded in our investment decision-making processes, as well as through the oversight of our operating companies. Key elements of these ESG considerations are scheduled below:

We measure certain ESG metrics and endeavor to benchmark Altaris and our companies against relevant industry peers and market standards.
Environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) goals are aspirational and not guarantees or promises that all goals will be met. There can be no assurance that Altaris’ ESG policies and procedures will continue, and Altaris’ ESG policies and procedures could change, even materially. Altaris is permitted to determine in its discretion that it is not feasible or practical to implement or complete certain of its ESG initiatives based on cost, timing or other considerations. ESG factors are only some of the many factors Altaris considers in making an investment, and there is no guarantee that Altaris will make investments in companies that create positive ESG impact or that consideration of ESG factors will enhance long-term value and financial returns for limited partners.
