ITPEnergised supports Private Equity clients develop and implement environmental, social and governance (ESG) strategies to navigate emerging stakeholder expectations and facilitate sustainable and responsible operations. Increasingly, our clients’ are focusing on analysing and improving supply chain ESG performance. The increased emphasis on the quantification and minimisation of Scope 2 and Scope 3 emissions has improved public awareness of supply chain ESG.
In addition, investor and customer demand for greater transparency around social aspects such as human rights and modern slavery in global supply chains has lead to an increased drive to ensure organisations’ ESG ambitions are realised across their value chain.
ITPEnergised has undertaken supply chain ESG assessment for clients in private equity and energy sectors to support them to develop frameworks and strategies for quantifying risk and increasing transparency around material ESG aspects.
We are able to add significant value through the sharing application of experience and initiatives across the sectors we operate in.
Many emerging aspects require an industry or sector level approach to implement change.
We are able to identify opportunities for collaboration between clients with similar ESG aims and objectives, through sector level initiatives such as client specific peer reviews as well as our PE Index. This report assesses the ESG public reporting performance of 160 carefully selected British PE and Venture Capital Association (BVCA) firms, and offers a fresh perspective on the importance of ESG transparency.
We have advised on the integration of supply chain ESG assessment and management solutions into clients’ existing procurement and due diligence processes. This approach ensures that ESG aspects can be risk assessed prior to the awarding of contracts. In addition, existing contracts can be assessed for ESG risk and opportunity withing the normal procurement life cycle.
