ESG as a value creator: From people to governance

As ESG comes to the forefront of decision making, private equity firms are increasingly realising ESG can become a force for driving value rather than a risk management exercise. This change of pace can create opportunities for GPs who are well advanced in their responsible investment journey. A group of leading investors will offer their insights into how to capture the opportunity set as well as what they are doing on the fund and portfolio level to get ahead. 

  • How have GPs changed the operating model to incorporate ESG, and how has this affected investment decision making?
  • What are the differences between governance practices across Asia, and how difficult is it, given local nuances, to implement appropriate governance standards?
  • How do you benchmark diversity, equity, and inclusion KPIs?
  • What are the challenges when dealing with cybersecurity risk?
