Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) - Risk Assessment


1 Day Training

Course Overview

Asset owners, among other stakeholders, are becoming increasingly concerned about how asset managers, such as private equity firms, assess ESG risks in order to inform buy-outs/acquisitions decisions and then manage those risks to protect value and unlock value-generating opportunities during the holding period. Climate change mitigation and adaptation, environmental management practises and duty of care, working and safety conditions, human rights, anti-bribery and corruption practises, and compliance with relevant laws and regulations are all examples of ESG risks.
