ESG consultant needed across portfolio


PE founder needs ESG consultant for 3-year plan

A PE firm founder came to us with a critical need for an ESG consultant that could help their firm develop an ESG plan and implement it across their portfolio. Having recently recognized the growing importance of ESG to GPs and LPs, they urgently needed a specialized consultant to help with their planning on how to effectively implement ESG initiatives at both the firm and portco level. The founder wanted a provider who could build out a 3-year ESG implementation plan focused on the most critical aspects of ESG from an LP’s perspective, as well as help them implement practical efforts to integrate ESG into their standard due diligence process. Ultimately, the founder needed a best-in-class ESG consultant who understood their size fund and how LPs looked at them, could build out a strategic plan that the deal team could execute, and support the firm with the timing of the implementation.
