Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Reference Guide

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) is a broad term used to define a variety of non-financial investment issues. Developing a nuanced understanding of these issues is imperative for industry practitioners and stakeholders as investor attention to ESG matters increases. The growing importance of ESG in the private equity industry is evident in the proliferation of available resources and content on the subject. EMPEA has created and updated this ESG Reference Guide in an effort to facilitate this information exchange and communicate the availability of these resources.
