ESG as a value driver

PE firms are doubling down on ESG to boost portfolio companies’ resiliency and their appeal to buyers, customers, and talent

ESG is getting attention as a value-creation lever from sponsors seeking to drive value within existing assets, say KPMG’S Glenn Mincey and Tania Carnegie in an interview with Private Equity International Magazine.

The goal is to create more sustainable, resilient, and attractive companies for investors, customers, and employees going forward, not ESG for the sake of ESG.

Key interview takeaways:

  • PE firms that previously took a more compliance or risk-based approach to diligence are now paying greater attention to ESG as a value creation lever, particularly within their existing portfolio.
  • The ESG value story today is more than whether the right policies and procedures are in place; it’s about how ESG is embedded in the way the company does business and communicating how that adds to or preserves the value of the business.
  • PE firms are prioritizing highest carbon-emitting companies in their portfolios for attention, driven by investor expectations, regulation, and the climate commitments they’ve made.
  • The regulatory and standards landscape is evolving fast and furiously—with each new regulation accompanied by its own set of data, reporting, and disclosure requirements.
