We found that better environmental, social and governance (ESG) management provides an opportunity for the private equity sector to generate more value - protecting and creating more value for their portfolio companies, for their investors and for society at large. We think that there is not only a clear benefit in better ESG management, but also in the value being quantified and communicated to investors, acquirers and wider stakeholders.

Highlights include:

  • 79%of PE houses believe investor interest in ESG issues will increase in the next two years
  • 71% of PE houses include ESG management in their due diligence at acquisition
  • Less than 15% of PE houses calculate the value they create through ESG activity
