Private equity managers are integrating ESG factors into their investment processes at increasing rates, driven by the needs to flag potential deal threats, identify ESG related opportunities, create value for their portfolio companies, and report portfolio-company-level and fund-level ESG performances in a harmonized standard. However, given by the nature of private markets, managers always find it difficult to collect, standardize and monitor the ESG metrics of their portfolio companies.
