Mainstream analysts are beginning to understand, accept and incorporate ESG aspects into their capital allocation recommendations. Company directors are increasingly recognising the need to take ESG matters seriously at board level. Private equity fund managers have a long-term investment horizon and are ideally placed to implement improvements in ESG management over time in their portfolio companies, which add value to their investments.
