February 26, 2015

The London Business School (LBS) Coller Institute of Private Equity has released their findings from the first phase of their research into the link between ESG and value creation in private equity.

Read the Adveq Applied Research Series Report: ESG moving out of the Compliance Room and into the Heart of the Investment Process (Francesca Cornelli, Ioannis Ioannou and Thomas Zhang)

The findings are based upon a survey of 42 private equity firms, the primary goal being to gain a deeper understanding of the process of ESG integration and the current state of affairs regarding ESG in the private equity industry. The long term vision of this research project is to gain a deeper understanding of the value creation potential of ESG integration in private equity through the collection of more fine-grained data.
