Alternative investment managers increase focus on ESG outcomes, with Climate Action being the top concern
The last twelve months have seen a sharp rise in the proportion of private equity managers ad-dressing climate change in their ESG policies, according to a new study by LGT Capital Partners. In its tenth annual ESG Report, LGT Capital Partners finds that almost half (47%) of private equi-ty managers are now addressing climate change through their ESG policies, an increase of 13 percentage points over the last year. The proposition of managers assessing climate risks has also risen notably (from 32% in 2021 to 43% in 2022), while there has also been strong growth in the number of managers monitoring greenhouse gas emissions (40%, compared to 28% in 2021).
