Responsible Investment

We believe in the importance of investing responsibly and that ESG management is as important as a project's technical characteristics or market conditions.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Integration

As a mining-focused alternative investment firm, RCF understands the inherent risks associated with mining. As part of its investment analysis and risk management strategy, RCF integrates ESG matters into its due diligence process and ownership activities, which it believes contributes to the improvement of long-term returns and more sustainable businesses.


RCF actively engages with its portfolio companies throughout the investment process and encourages them to implement responsible mining and ESG practices into their business systems. RCF regularly reviews ESG performance and works with portfolio companies to ensure strategies are in place to mitigate ESG risks and recognize related opportunities.
