We are delighted to announce that Greenstone has been announced as a finalist in the Real Deals ESG Awards 2022. The Real Deals ESG Awards identify and celebrate those who are making positive change through ESG in private equity. Greenstone’s InvestorPortal SaaS solution has been recognised in the ‘ESG Tech’ category.
The shortlisting for this award recognises Greenstone’s leadership in technology innovation through the launch and development of its investor ESG solution, InvestorPortal, which is being used by Private Equity firms all over the world. Through an easy-to-use interface, InvestorPortal simplifies the collection, management, analysis and reporting of ESG data for the General Partners, their portfolio companies and their own investors.
As well as streamlining the collection of standard and proprietary ESG data and documents, InvestorPortal is also enabling Private Equity firms to accurately calculate GHG emissions at Fund or Portfolio level. The measurement and tracking of GHG emissions across an investment portfolio enables investors to fully understand carbon impacts, identify climate-change-related risks, meet regulatory requirements and calculate indirect (Scope 3) GHG emissions across a value chain.
Over the past few years, the private equity industry has been under increasing pressure from investors to put ESG at the forefront of their investment decisions. This has intensified the focus on social and environmental issues and practices within managers and their portfolio companies.
Against this backdrop, private equity firms have been charged with identifying challenges and implementing changes needed to have a robust ESG strategy while continuing to deliver strong returns. These Real Deal awards are designed to recognise the efforts and success of private equity firms and their advisers as they work towards implementing effective ESG policies and ultimately improving the world we live in.
