ERM is a Lead Sponsor at the Responsible Investment Forum Europe 2018
Now in its 9th year, the longest running Private Equity meeting focused on bringing together GPs and LPs to discuss ESG issues and market trends is back again. ESG is at the heart of the PEI brand as highlighted by the recent Responsible Investment Special in February. Many of the experts quoted in this unique supplement will be speaking at the event. Attracting over 250 delegates annually, this event is the largest event globally focused on ESG issues within private equity.
Whilst ESG has grown due to LPs demanding managers to adopt stricter ESG principles, GPs are increasingly seeing how implementing ESG can add value to their portfolio companies.
