Sustainability: if you can't measure it you can't improve it
Sustainability is a critical concern for individuals, businesses, investors, and governments worldwide.
As we strive towards a more sustainable future, data is rapidly emerging as a critical tool to achieving this goal.
The private equity industry is no exception. In fact, it has a unique role to play in driving sustainable practices through the power of – and investment into – data.
Private equity firms have traditionally focused on generating returns for investors by investing in and optimising co
mpanies for financial performance. However, as the demand for sustainable investments increases, underpinned by heightened consumer awareness and demand for more sustainable practices, private equity firms are increasingly recognising and investing behind sustainability metrics – icluding the companies that are developing the tools and methodologies to track environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors.
Recently, we had the opportunity to work on a couple of data due diligences into sustainability companies targeted by private equity investors. These are some core insights from those engagements.
