Environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria may not be a new set of standards but it is gaining more and more ground amongst private equity companies and investors as it helps screen potential investments. Modern investors reevaluate and challenge traditional investment approaches as the global environment evolves and becomes more complex. ESG criteria assess a company’s values and behaviors and help investors see if these values match their own.
