Investor ESG Toolkit for Private Equity

The business case for integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues is familiar and accepted. Yet, the challenge remains across private markets, and private equity in particular, to provide clarity on how to take action and seize the benefits for people, planet and profit that ESG integration brings.

In a world where ESG factors are crucial to value creation, ESG integration is essential to ensuring firms can manage emerging risk and optimise investment returns. Without the ability to demonstrate a systemic inclusion of ESG issues in investment analysis, investment decisions and ongoing portfolio management, firms will be unable to attract a share of the growing amount of investment capital looking for opportunities from an ESG perspective.
