We work with leading private equity investors to identify ESG related risks and opportunities during the due diligence process. Recent activities have included business diligence on a recycling company, environmental and social impact analysis of an oil and gas business, and environmental policy analysis for an industrial company.

Our focus is on achieving measurable ESG results for our clients by working with PE operating partners and portfolio company management teams.   Initiatives at portfolio companies range from identifying material ESG issues for the company to incorporate into its strategic planning to sourcing vendors of energy efficient technology to developing sustainability language for marketing materials.

We serve the growing need to not only generate positive environmental, social and financial results but also find compelling ways to communicate those initiatives to relevant stakeholders.  We have worked with portfolio companies and private equity firm executives to develop ESG measurement tools and related communications materials.
