KEY ESG is attending and sponsoring this two-day event which brings together experts from across the ESG and private equity industries to share knowledge and best-practice on ESG strategy. Our co-founder Heleen van Poecke will be speaking on a panel on the 31st January at 2pm entitled:
Real Deals and the Drawdown’s ESG conference will build on Real Deals’ 20 years of experience in the european private equity sphere, to provide an exclusive platform for fund managers, investors and expert solution providers to tackle one of the most rapidly evolving and topical issues facing the industry: ESG.
ESG has become a central tenet of firms’ approach, an integral business driver that is key to attracting capital, customers, talent and creating value for exit. Having strong and genuine esg credentials is no longer ‘trendy’ but reflective of an industry shift to be considerate and conscious of their impacts to people and planet.
This year’s agenda covers the key themes for 2024; engaging directly with how the sector is changing their behaviours, how to quantify esg as a commercial metric, the ever-important role of data and benchmarking, and we hear from LPs on their expectations for firms and portfolio companies.
