The PRI has launched a guide for ESG integration among general partners in private equity, looking at ESG within a GP organisation and within its investment process.
The guide provides suggestions on how to incorporate ESG factors into ownership practices and processes, including seeking appropriate disclosure from these companies on ESG risks and opportunities and reporting on this to their stakeholders.
More than 50 GPs were interviewed for the guide, and selected case studies are used as examples of ESG implementation – including KKR, Blue Wolf Capital Partners, and Apax.
Limited partners can use the guide to understand the different ESG integration practices being implemented.
The guide can be accessed here
