For the private equity industry, sustainability has become a central part of the investment agenda. Social change, regulation, a ‘new generation’ of investors and a global financial crisis are just some of the drivers behind the rise of ESG (environmental, social and corporate governance) investment. There is no question that ESG is not a marketing topic anymore, it is now at the core of value creation as the PE industry responds to changes in the market.
In the second of our two-part podcast on ESG and sustainable finance in the EU, funds partner Edward Lee alongside regulatory partners Kirsten Lapham and John Verwey take a closer look at the details of the EU regulations themselves to better understand the challenges and opportunities for fund managers.
