ESG Seminar

The Council hosted its 3rd ESG Seminar on Thursday, July 16, at the offices of Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. (KKR). The seminar series is exclusive to PEGCC members and convenes ESG subject matter experts and implementers within private equity firms.

Panel discussions, led by representatives from PwC, Apollo Global Management, Paul, Weiss, Rifkind, Wharton & Garrison, and O’Melveny & Myers, focused on technical aspects of ESG policies:

– How do GPs implement policies and procedures to diligence ESG issues effectively pre- and post-acquisition?

– How does implementation differ between large and smaller PE firms?

– What are accepted benchmarks and standards?

Attendees ranged from executives at large, mid-sized, and smaller member firms as well as ESG specialists at Associate Member advisory firms. Bronwyn Bailey, who heads the Research team at the PEGCC, moderated the discussion.
