Roadmap | Decarbonising Methodologies for Private Equity

Decarbonisation is an increasingly important topic in Private Equity, and Private Markets more broadly, as regulators, investors and the public are putting pressure on the industry to factor decarbonisation into investment and management decisions. These pressures are compelling Private Market participants, including Private Equity firms (General Partners or GPs), and the Limited Partners (LPs) that invest in them, to act. Over the last few years, a diverse landscape of decarbonisation commitments, memberships, methodologies, and reporting platforms have emerged for GPs. With so many choices, navigating this landscape can be daunting at best, and paralyzing at worst.

This private equity roadmap produced in collaboration between Anthesis, iCI, IIGCC, Ceres and Bain & Company, seeks to help GPs determine which decarbonisation methodology may be best suited to their circumstances by highlighting the similarities and differences between the Private Markets Decarbonisation Roadmap (PMDR) and the Net Zero Investment Framework’s (NZIF) Component for Private Equity.
