Environmental, Social, & Governance as a Strategy for Private Equity Investing & Value Creation

ESG Integration Helps Achieve Long-Term Value Creation

Capstone Partners released its white paper exploring how private equity firms can leverage Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) frameworks within their portfolio companies to enhance and create value from inception to exit. ESG initiatives in and of themselves do not make a poorly performing company profitable. However, when properly applied, ESG frameworks are a non-traditional financial analysis and engineering tool that can materially strengthen the fabric, flexibility, efficiency, and long-term growth potential of an organization and drive enhanced economic shareholder value. The paper explores the multifaceted definition of ESG, why the topic is relevant for every firm to consider, hurdles and upcoming changes the industry will likely face, and how to approach ESG integration.
