Missed opportunity for private equity on ESG management

Putting a price on value

London, 1 Oct 2013‑‑New research from PwC has found that private equity firms are missing an opportunity to put a value on the improvements they’re making within their portfolio companies, from implementing their environmental, social and governance (ESG) management programmes.

The report, Putting a price on value, based on the largest ever survey of the private equity industry’s attitude to ESG issues, found that less than 15% of PE houses  calculate the value they create through ESG activity. This is despite more than 80% of respondents saying that they monitor ESG activities.
