Better environmental, social and governance (ESG) management provides an opportunity for the private equity (PE) sector to generate more value – more value for their portfolio companies, for their investors and for society at large. We believe that not only is there clear benefit in better ESG management, but also that it is possible for the value to be quantified and communicated to investors, acquirers and wider stakeholders.
PwC Global PE Responsible Investment Survey 2013
This year, we carried out the largest ever survey of the private equity industry’s attitude to ESG issues in the PwC Global PE Responsible Investment Survey 2013. More than 100 PE houses in 18 countries responded, managing more than $860 billion of assets.
The PwC Global PE Responsible Investment Survey reveals a belief that ESG issue management is valuable - whether it’s protecting value through managing risk, or generating value by spotting opportunities.
