ESG Is No Longer Optional. What Every Private Equity Manager Should Know

Responsible investment (or ESG), once a do-good sideshow, is becoming mainstream. Private equity managers must consider a host of issues, from gender diversity to carbon emissions, or risk losing investor capital and deals. The trend is only growing.

The challenge today is formalizing ESG policies to meet heightened standards. In this webinar, Navatar in conjunction with Invest Europe, brought together leading ESG thinkers from the industry to discuss how GPs should present their ESG framework to investors, what to consider during pre-investment due diligence, and ultimately portfolio monitoring and exit.

We address:

  • Why your ESG strategy can make or break a deal
  • What LPs want to see in your policies/practices
  • Bringing your ESG DDQ to the next level
  • Automation, plastics and other emerging ESG risks
