Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) is no longer just a buzz-phrase or a nice-to-have. Increasingly, LPs, customers, regulatory authorities and even employees are demanding that ESG policies and practices are integrated into the entire deal making process; from sourcing, due diligence to portfolio monitoring and value-add. Beyond risk mitigation, ESG integration is increasingly recognised as a compelling need and lever to increase portfolio value. Locally, the Environmental Risk Management Guidelines (EnRM) have been issued by the authorities and asset managers are expected to craft their ESG policies and to put in place processes and procedures to manage and implement these policies commensurate with the size, nature and focus of their Funds.
Led by professionals in sustainable investment and reporting, this course will equip participants with key principles for ESG integration, tools for better calibration and measurement and feature real-life case studies and sharing from LPs as well as GPs from both private equity and venture capital.
