Tern PLC is an investment company primarily focused on Internet of Things (IoT). Much of the media attention for IoT has been focused on the commercial benefits of both consumer and business applications, even though the foundations of IoT also enables technology to deliver positive economic, social and climate impacts that help transform our societies for the better.
With a focus on IoT, our portfolio companies will continue to address some of the world's biggest challenges by contributing to a healthier, more environmentally friendly and energy efficient society. As an investing company, ESG is a consideration that combines our objectives of outperformance of market-rate financial returns with delivering positive social and environmental outcomes that maintain exemplary good governance practices.
At Tern PLC, environmental, social and governance factors are integrated into our decision-making process when considering investments, and we remain committed to this policy of responsible investment throughout the investment lifecycle, from the pre-investment stage through to exit.
We use a range of methods to screen, appraise and monitor our investments which are aligned to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI).
Tern PLC’s investment model seeks to have a positive impact on the environment. And as a company we strive to reduce our carbon footprint.
As an organisation we promote a culture that is fair, transparent and inclusive. We manage our business and stakeholders interactions in a socially responsible way whilst contributing to the communities in which we operate.
Tern PLC, its directors and employees operate in an honest, ethical and socially responsible manner.
