LGT Capital Partners addressing ESG regulation in private equity
Over the last year, LGT Capital Partners has stepped up its focus on the EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR) within private equity investments. These efforts have enabled the firm to align all new investment offerings – including primaries, secondaries and directs – with Article 8 requirements under SFDR, which “promote environmental and/or social (E&S) characteristics.” This is in addition to aligning the firm’s impact private equity offering with Article 9 requirements because of the strategy’s explicit sustainable investment objective and impact focus.
Commenting on the survey findings, Tycho Sneyers, a Managing Partner at LGT Capital Partners and PRI board member, said:
“There has been significant progress in how alternative investment managers approach ESG issues in recent years, and this is a trend that has continued over the last 12 months. This shift has been largely supported by regulators demanding greater clarity in how ESG is defined and applied, particularly the implementation of SFDR, which is the most wide-ranging ESG regulatory framework currently implemented.”
