How issues of sustainability shape investment decisions

Sustainability issues are right at the top of the agenda of decision-makers in politics and economy, but also among consumers, and other stakeholders:

  • Sustainability challenges – such as climate change, loss of biodiversity, and environmental degradation – are perceived as greatest global risks
  • The European regulation directs capital flows on a large scale into more sustainable business models
  • Supply chains increasingly have to meet the sustainability requirements of international corporations
  • Society confronts companies with clear sustainability expectations

The issue of sustainability has thus also become a crucial aspect of investment decisions.


What does this mean for Private Equity Firms?

Due to the changing framework conditions, ESG (Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance) has developed into a clear value driver for corporations: Corresponding risks must be identified and actively managed, and market potentials must be systematically addressed.

Private equity companies that systematically integrate ESG into their investment decisions and active ownership of their portfolio companies can increase the value and resilience of their portfolio and thus secure a competitive advantage. At the same time, they meet the increasing expectations of stakeholders such as investors, regulatory authorities, and their own employees.
