We have been providing ESG support to several Private Equity firms for the past eight years; working with a total of eight mid-market firms and retaining the majority of these on an annual basis. Services provided include: helping to draft ESG policies, responding to external reporting requirements and integrating ESG considerations into the due diligence process.
Since 2009 we have worked with around 60 portfolio companies, identifying key risks and opportunities through the completion of ESG assessments. The areas we cover include: health, safety and environmental management; people management; ethical business practices; governance and community engagement. Through these assessments we have made a number of recommendations which have resulted in the delivery of cost savings direct to the portfolio company.
We are proud to be considered a key provider of ESG services to mid-market private equity firms and continue to expand our services to meet our client needs. We offer a tailored approach to each engagement and will work as an extended member of our clients’ team to ensure we deliver value throughout the process. The diagram below shows the four areas where we would typically provide private equity support. We have also recently delivered a number of in-house ESG workshops to help upskill key personnel within our client base.
