TCFD Compliance Statement






The Board recognises that transparency regarding climate-related risks and opportunities is critical to maintaining the trust of our stakeholders and allows our investors to understand the implications of the Company's activities on climate change. The Board's consideration of key environmental risks is included under the principal risks and uncertainties section of the Director's Report. The Board also presents the following synthesis of its adoption of the recommendations of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (the "TCFD"), structured into four sections: Governance, Risk Management, Strategy and Metrics & Targets.




The Board actively oversees The Company's investment strategy. At each Board meeting our Board engages in robust discussions about its current investments and any potential investment opportunities where they address any emerging challenges and disruptions. At the same time, our Board works with senior management to develop a comprehensive view of the Company's short and long-term business risks. Both the Board and senior management team recognise that operating responsibly, which includes minimizing the environmental impact of our operations, is fundamental to the long-term success of the Company. We believe building a better future involves embedding climate awareness throughout our organization, starting at the top.


The Board oversees the management of specific risks and opportunities, including climate-related risks and opportunities. The senior management team provides regular updates to our Board on their activities, and, in addition, the Board reviews the risks associated with the Company's investment strategy throughout the year.



Risk Management


The Board recognises that climate change risk is a global issue that may impact how we run our business, both today and in the future. As such, we continue to look for ways to improve our understanding of climate-related risks. However, although the impact of climate change is relatively low at this stage in the Company's development, we are conscious that "doing nothing" isn't an acceptable response to the impact climate change may have on the business in the future. We are therefore working to integrate climate risk variables into our overall risk management process and establish formal multi-disciplinary processes that engage both the Board and senior management team.




The Company operates from a corporate head office in Canada but holds investments in several global jurisdictions including Italy, USA, Tunisia, Sudan, and Kazakhstan. The nature of these investments includes oil and gas extraction and electricity production. The Board is conscious of the inherent environmental risks associated with the extraction of natural resources and the production of energy. However, the Board actively encourages its investment partners to operate within international environmental guidelines and to perform its activities using the most up-to-date equipment.


Metrics & Targets


The Board is committed to reducing its impact on the environment in all aspects of its business activities and in all jurisdictions in which it operates. The Board engages with all its key stakeholders and partners and encourages the reduction of CO2 emissions throughout the value chain to promote an environment that actively strives towards achieving 'net zero' by 2035. However, at this stage in the Company's development there are no formal metrics or targets to measure the Company's emissions against, but the Board continues to review the need to implement metrics & targets.
