Jon Hancock, CEO

LDC’s commitment to embedding ESG performance across all levels of its business ranges from ensuring its own operations are net zero by 2030, to working with its portfolio company management teams to successfully transition to a low carbon economy and driving diversity in the UK’s future business leaders through its partnership with The Prince’s Trust.

Joe Tager, Investment Director at LDC in London, added: “We are incredibly proud to partner with Sedex. We have known the management team for over 18 months and through our portfolio have experienced the significant benefits of becoming a Sedex member.
