KEY ESG makes EDCI reporting processes faster, smoother and more effective

The perfect framework to get started with ESG

EDCI is the first-ever private equity industry collaboration striving to develop a minimum baseline for ESG reporting through a standardised set of ESG metrics. Launched in 2021 by Carlyle, CalPERS, and a group of leading GPs and LPs, the initiative now brings together 230+ GPs and LPs. It is a great first step for investors looking to commit to ESG. That's why KEY ESG's software includes the EDCI framework, metrics and methodology in all its packages.
