Consultant Working Group Supports Private ESG Reporting Project
The project was adopted last year by major private equity firms and investors.
The Investment Consultants Sustainability Working Group, or ICSWG-US, a group of 17 U.S. investment consulting firms, was founded last year to promote sustainable investing. Its members include some of the largest names in the industry, including Aon, WTW, Meketa Investment Group, Callan and Russell Investments, among others.
The group announced its support for the ESG Data Convergence Project, an initiative led by the Institutional Limited Partners Association, or ILPA, intended to enlist private equity firms and investors to “streamline” the industry’s “historically fragmented approach to collecting and reporting ESG data.”
