ESG Improvement Strategy Rollout

We seek to balance ESG performance benefits with the related implementation costs and help to identify and facilitate alternative financing arrangements if required.


Historically, private equity and other fund managers looking to demonstrate their environmental, social and governance (ESG) performance to their LPs and other stakeholders would often reach out to their portfolio companies.

They would collate a series of case studies of positive initiatives they had delivered and complement these with a narrative on their own volunteering and charitable activities.

However, LPs and other stakeholders are no longer satisfied with such an approach and are looking to see that investment managers have considered what ESG issues are material in each asset or portfolio company and have implemented targets to achieve improvement.

Anthesis’ specialists have been working with a broad spectrum of businesses for decades to help them improve their sustainability, social and governance performance.

As such, having worked with a firm to determine which are its material issues, Anthesis will help the management team to define its key performance indicators and related improvement targets.

We then have the strength in depth to bring in the relevant expert advisers, for instance in energy, resource use and waste minimisation and management, to seek out cost-effective improvement opportunities and implementation strategies.

Our advice always seeks to balance the ESG performance benefits with the related implementation costs and our experience extends to helping to identify and facilitate alternative financing arrangements if required.

We will also routinely put in place implementation teams, potentially embedding our staff within the client organisation or a particular site to facilitate delivery.


I have worked with Anthesis for many years. They have a depth of ESG understanding and expertise, allowing real analysis and advice on the emerging issues that are becoming increasingly material to our clients. What sets them apart is their willingness and ability to apply this, together with technology solutions, to enhance the quality and speed of their reporting.

We wanted the ESG screen as we were keen to understand the definition of ESG and to see the criteria you would be using. We were also interested to see how others would view us through this lens. The Anthesis screen provided us a with a “mirror”. The value to Neste was that it confirmed we are on a right track to addressing ESG issues. It also helped us to identify some potential improvement opportunities, several of which we are working on, and others that warrant further evaluation.
