ESG Management during Investment Ownership

During the ownership and operation of a business, private equity firms must ensure they meet their investor’s Environmental, Social & Governance (ESG) requirements to protect asset value. Embedding ESG into core business functions can reveal opportunities for maximising your portfolio company’s value and outcomes. Failing to meet the ESG expectations of governments, employees, and customers may trigger major legal, reputational, and financial costs.

Demonstrating ESG integration

Good ESG practices are good business practices. And ESG initiatives are most impactful when integrated into the core business strategy. The ESG strategy should be tailored to the needs and context of each portfolio company, with goals and standards specifically chosen to identify risks and opportunities.

By shaping strategies that maximize results, we help clients demonstrate ESG performance across their portfolio companies’ direct and indirect impact, including:

  • supply chains
  • product stewardship
  • direct environmental and social business impacts
  • employee culture and labour practices

ESG performance tracking

ESG key performance indicators (KPIs) allow a company to measure progress and compare performance to industry benchmarks. Appropriate KPIs will act as a measure of business health and should be tailored to the: product and service offering, regulatory environment, geographic footprint, industry, position in the value chain, and extent of horizontal and vertical integration.

We help firms identify and validate appropriate ESG metrics for each of their portfolio companies. Making reporting easy, our advisory service is supported by a bespoke dashboard to track performance against KPIs (part of our ComplianceMap tool).


For private equity firms, our platform provides a centralised online platform for managing KPIs at portfolio, company, and site-specific level. Shaped to suit your needs, your custom dashboard will connect ESG data across each of your portfolio companies, ensuring alignment with firm-level ESG policies and goals.
