Putting a price on value
Better environmental, social and governance (ESG) management provides an opportunity for the private equity (PE) sector to generate more value – more value for their portfolio companies, for their investors and for society at large. The authors of this publication believe that not only is there clear benefit in better ESG management, but also that it is possible for the value to be quantified and communicated to investors, acquirers and wider stakeholders.
The PwC Private Equity (PE) responsible investment survey shows
there is more opportunity for value protection and creation through
Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issue management
for the private equity industry.
This report summarises the findings of the PwC PE Responsible
Investment Survey 2013, and sets out thinking on how
better ESG management can create value in private equity.
Better ESG management isn’t easy. It needs specialised skills, dedicated
resources and new ways of thinking about how companies are managed and where
economies and growth are headed. And the link between ESG issues and value
creation is not always easy to measure. Even the most sophisticated Private
Equity houses see the challenge in understanding, quantifying and communicating
the value that good ESG management can deliver.
