Together with Private Equity Wire we hosted a virtual panel to discuss LPs’ concerns when it comes to ESG, how GPs can use ESG to create value and the view on third-party measurement & potential industry convergence around metrics.
During the webinar we looked at these topics from various angles, such as how important the article 8 and 9 categories are becoming under SFDR, LPs challenges to gain transparency and data necessary to assess and properly integrate ESG into the overall risk management process.
- New impact funds are being launched or raised at above USD 1bn in size to capture institutional LP allocations. What is the future for this space?
- ESG reporting and risk assessment has been awash with competing standards and third-party providers – are GPs and LPs finally aligning themselves?
- Why opportunities to invest through the energy transition are growing, and how GPs are using ESG as a lever to create value in other sectors too
