Responsible Investment Roundtable


The Invest Europe Responsible Investment Roundtable, set up in 2013, is a permanent forum dedicated to responsible investment and ESG in Europe’s private equity industry. A sub-committee of the Invest Europe Professional Standards Committee, the Roundtable aims to promote responsible investment practices and the consideration of ESG issues throughout Invest Europe's membership and the broader private equity community.

The Roundtable encourages the open exchange of ideas and promotes informed discussion about responsible investment practices and ESG issues. In doing so, it enables industry participants to understand, implement and improve their ESG approaches. The Roundtable also plays an important role in giving expert advice and shaping the association’s position on new policy and legislative measures in the field of sustainable finance.

In addition to Invest Europe's Professional Standards Handbook, which comprises an overview of the responsible investment and ESG factors, the Roundtable has taken a central role in producing our ESG Due Diligence Guide for private equity managers and investors, as well as the Responsible Investment Bibliography.

The Responsible Investment Roundtable is composed of a Core Roundtable of members and an Affiliate Network of experts who are called upon to support the work of the Roundtable when needed.
