The Changing Climate for Private Equity

By Ceres and the SustainAbility Institute by ERM, a report aiming to accelerate action on the climate crisis by unlocking the potential for private equity to help attain the goals of the Paris Agreement.

  • The report outlines the direction of the private equity sector with respect to climate. The report is driven by learning derived from in-depth interviews with representatives of 27 top private equity actors and complementary research. It finds the industry facing increasing pressure to align investment activity with carbon reduction targets and other climate-related goals as well as in need of better guidance and tools to support the development and implementation of climate-aligned investment strategies.

  • Given private equity firms’ sway, the report examines how they view climate risk and opportunity and what they expect of companies in their portfolios in terms of net zero goals and climate risk management and disclosure.
