Deals webcast series: Integrating environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues in deals and valuing their impact
 This presentation is no longer available.
  Investors are increasingly taking environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into consideration when assessing the value of a company. However, most executives are unsure how to truly unlock this value the impact it can have on essential reporting and IPO sale prices.

We’ll discuss the role solutions like ESG can play in increased valuation by creating cost-savings and driving new revenue streams. We’ll also dive into questions about a company’s sustainability program that are being asked by new stakeholders, like the Exchanges and private equity, and how it is more important than ever to have effective answers. Finally, we’ll discuss the results of our newly released PE Responsible Investment Survey where over 100 respondents shared their views on understanding, quantifying, and communicating the value of ESG.

Topics of discussion will include:
  • What is ESG?
  • How does ESG factor into the deal process?
  • What is the role of new stakeholders in IPO valuation and how can you be prepared to interact with them?
  • How does PE view ESG management?
