The ESG landscape for private equity investors is evolving, and today’s market conditions are creating both distractions and opportunities.
On the one hand, limited partners and other stakeholders are increasingly holding private equity firms accountable for incorporating ESG policies and principles into their investment decisions, fund operations, and portfolio management. On the other, market conditions, such as the increased cost of capital, high inflation, and challenges related to growth, are making it more difficult for private equity firms to focus on ESG.
Join us as we explore the key steps to navigating environmental, social, and governance priorities amid today’s market conditions; aligning with shareholder priorities; and creating measurable value along the way.
Take advantage of this opportunity to gain fresh perspectives on topics such as:
Factors driving an ESG focus in the U.S. private equity market, most significantly the demand from limited partners
