ILPA Podcast: Voices of Private Equity

Adam Black

ESG issues are coming to the fore in the private equity industry as investors and general partners seek to define ESG and strive for consistency in implementation and metrics.

In this podcast, recorded with ILPA, Adam Black, Coller Capital’s Head of ESG and Sustainability, reflects on how environmental, social and governance issues were received in the private equity industry when the concept was first introduced, and the importance of putting ESG issues into commercial terms.

Adam explains why a focus on measurable outcomes, rather than a framework, is critical to ESG success and why a GP’s approach to ESG can be symptomatic of how well the firm is run.
