CDC Group

CDC toolkit

CDC Group is the UK Government's Development Finance Institution. CDC provides patient capital to businesses in some of the world's poorest countries and currently has around $6.9billon committed to over 150 funds in emerging markets.

In 2015 the ESG communications team help CDC to edit its new ESG Toolkit for Fund Managers, one of the largest projects of its kind anywhere in the world.

Across hundreds of pages, the online toolkit provides guidance on a wide range of environmental, social and governance issues - from biodiversity to Board diversity; and details how fund managers can manage these issues at different parts of the investment cycle and in different regions. 

The ESG Comms team helped transform detailed technical jargon into user-friendly content despite tough timelines. We were highly-praised for our ability to deliver both clarity and readability. The toolkit launched in June 2015 and is widely regarded as critical resource for responsible investing in emerging markets.
