We are pleased to announce the third Real Deals ESG Awards, celebrating those who are making positive change through ESG in private equity. This year’s awards will be presented in London in October 2024.

ESG has entered the mainstream, with the majority of investors now incorporating environmental, social and governance factors into their decision-making, and fund managers placing greater emphasis on evaluating ESG risks and opportunities within portfolio companies.

Judged by an independent panel of ESG specialists, the Real Deals ESG Awards recognise the efforts of private equity firms and their advisors to operate more sustainably, collect and utilise reliable ESG data, and drive real change in portfolio companies.

2023 Awards ceremony

Over the past few years the private equity industry has been under increased pressure from investors to put ESG at the forefront of their work. 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 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.
