Based on our experience of working with clients from the private equity industry, we have seen a notable rise in attention to responsible investment and the management of environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues over the last few years. We have also observed what seems to be an emerging common challenge – to demonstrate the value of implementing a responsible investment strategy. Does managing ESG issues really help to create value? And if so, how?
This publication explores several key areas:
- What is driving private equity houses to increase their focus on responsible investment?
- How is the industry tackling the challenge of valuing and measuring its responsible investment activities?
- How will the industry response evolve in the future?
