Market sentiment and the increasing importance of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) to firms’ competitiveness across the market, combined with wide-ranging and rapidly developing ESG regulatory reforms, are driving increased focus on ESG at both LP and GP levels across Europe. As a result, the market is showing demand for enhanced diligence, and a wider range of deal provisions are being considered in light of their potential to enhance the ESG outlook of PE investments. 

In this episode of Connected With Latham, London private equity partner Tom Evans speaks with London associate Anne Mainwaring, who specializes in ESG financial services regulation. They discuss private equity firms’ opportunities to move toward a more holistic approach to tackling ESG matters on transactions.
