ESG policy and approach

ESG due diligence

Investor reporting

ESG engagement and monitoring

Recent client work

  • supported private equity firms in assessing the ESG performance of their current portfolio, where she engaged with current portfolio companies to become more ESG focused and identify value creation opportunities
  • involved in the development of a private equity fund proposition, focused on sustainably mined metals required for the energy transition, where she gained experience in fund strategy development and the world of critical metals
  • assisted private equity firms in fast-paced ESG due diligence projects of potential targets, analysing the data room from a risk perspective to identify red flags and risk mitigation (or value creation) opportunities

From the very beginning of the ESG movement, about fifteen years ago, asset managers have asked themselves if and how ESG can create value. In our view, trillion-dollar questions are always worthy of our attention, particularly if answering them may help to save the planet.

ESG Insights #2 – The Alpha in ESG
Value creation is not the only driver of ESG. By creating monetary value, an entrepreneur can turn a public need into a solution. This public need is what drives ESG. Our practical ESG insights will be published on a regular basis.
