On Demand: What is private equity doing to combat climate change?

02 February 2022

Hosted by Apex Group and Global Custodian

There is little doubt that climate change is the hot topic of discussion for now and the foreseeable future. We have heard politicians’ pontifications on the subject, but it is becoming increasingly clear that more needs to be done.

The financial sector has a key role in addressing this Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) issue. Pressure to invest sustainably, into businesses which support people and planet, has been mounting for several years.

Listen to Apex Group and Global Custodian for a timely discussion, exploring the key issues facing financial institutions and how private equity is stepping up to the challenge.

On the agenda:

  • How can companies and investments take greater responsibility for their carbon footprint?
  • How should companies measure their carbon footprint and make the move towards carbon neutrality?
  • What part do private equity firms have in building a greener, more sustainable future?
  • What impact will the political action at the COP26 summit have on the business world?
