Littlejohn has a strong commitment to the highest standards of business practices and ethics. We recognize that environmental, social, and governance issues can affect investment performance and believe that effectively managing these issues can protect and create long-term value.

In formalizing our commitment to ESG management, Littlejohn has defined a set of principles that will guide our consideration of material ESG issues in investment decisions and ownership practices. We also recognize the ever changing ESG landscape means that Littlejohn needs to stay informed by interacting with like-minded peers on best practices and dedicating senior resources within the firm to lead this dynamic effort.

  • As part of our effort to integrate ESG considerations into our investment process, we’ve developed an ESG Diligence Checklist to assess companies' alignment with the United Nations Global Compact's in the areas of human rights, labor, environment, and anti-corruption. This checklist serves as a starting point for Littlejohn to assess risks and opportunities for improvement at potential control portfolio companies.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

At Littlejohn, we strive to create a culture where equality and inclusion is achievable for all our stakeholders; where opportunities, support and accountability are a part of our daily work ethic; and where diversity contributes to a better firm and therefore better returns for our investors. We are committed to constant improvement in this endeavor and it starts at the top, where senior management leads this effort, and filters all the way down to our recruiting process. Littlejohn, together with our peers and community, can make important changes toward an inclusive and equitable society by focusing on what is most important to make meaningful progress and holding ourselves accountable for that progress.
