Incorporating ESG in to Private Equity

Incorporating ESG in to Private Equity

Private equity is taking into account ESG values in its investment decisions and in how it manages its portfolio companies. In this video, Gavin outlines how ESG is monitored and how the investment process works within private equity.
Overview

The trend of incorporating ESG considerations in investment decisions has existed for many years but has accelerated in the last ten, affecting private equity along with other asset classes. Most PE firms view ESG incorporation as a compliance rather than a value adding exercise; part of the reason for this is the difficulty in directly measuring its financial impact. There are different ESG standards in circulation, making it a continuing challenge for all but the big firms to practically adopt it.

  • How to measure the impact of ESG
