Private Equity – Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) Due Diligence
Investors increasingly recognize the importance of incorporating sustainability and ESG analysis into their investment process, whether that analysis is used to ensure adherence to responsible investing mandates or as a risk management tool. Third-party activists such as environmental and consumer advocates are playing an ever-larger role in driving not just regulation, but also scrutiny of business practices, posing “headline” and reputational risks to companies across the energy, financial services and healthcare sectors.
Our ESG team leverages its relationships with third-party advocates, industry groups, and regulators to analyze the risk profile of potential investments and create actionable best practices to mitigate risk to both the Target company and the investor over the course of an investment.
