The future of ESG- trends, best practice and value creation

Globally, ESG continues to be an important topic for GPs, LPs, and dealmakers alike, and impact and sustainability funds have continued to gain traction in the US market. Concerns about greenwashing, however, are on the rise, with ESG becoming increasingly politicized in the US, and scrutiny in the industry is rising as the SEC looks to enhance climate and ESG disclosure standards. Our group of ESG experts will take stock of the market and discuss ESG investing from a value creation and risk mitigation perspective and offer their insights into the best opportunities available.

  • ESG as a key driver of value- what are GPs and dealmakers doing to put ESG at the heart of their business strategies?
  • From an investor perspective, are LPs expectations towards ESG shifting?
  • What are some potential greenwashing risks and how can GPs avoid this?
  • Next steps- how will ESG continue to drive investment strategies and deal activity as we move into 2023?
