The PRI launched guidance on ESG monitoring, reporting and dialogue in private equity. The guidance:
- Builds the business case and provides context for the increasing requests for ESG disclosure in private equity;
- Gives an overview of how LPs are currently monitoring GPs on ESG integration and how they use the information that they receive;
- Proposes a flexible ESG monitoring and reporting framework that builds on existing information collected during fundraising and streamlines the information exchange, and is supported by examples of how GPs might respond to the disclosure requests.
Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) Disclosure Framework for Private Equity (2013)
The Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance (ESG) Disclosure Framework for Private Equity was developed to help general partners (GPs) better understand the reporting requirements of limited partners (LPs) for ESG related information.
The Framework was produced in a process involving more than 40 limited partners from 11 countries, 20 Private Equity Associations – including LAVCA- and 10 general partners.
