Rewarding environmental, social and governance excellence in private equity

Tuesday, 27th September, 2022 | Kimpton Fitzroy, London

Deadline for all entries is Friday, 19th August.

The Private Equity Wire ESG AAA European Awards recognise excellence among private equity fund managers

across a wide range of categories

The Private Equity Wire ESG AAA European Awards have been created to benchmark, acknowledge, and reward the efforts of private equity firms that have created sustainable and sector-leading ESG policies at both the portfolio company and management firm level in Europe.


With regulators, LPs and internal stakeholders pushing for more progress and better ESG metrics, Private Equity Wire has partnered with EthicsGrade, the stakeholder-centric, AI-driven, ESG data company, to create an application process that is fair and credible.


We want being shortlisted and winning an award to be a genuine badge of ESG quality and advancement. Using the expertise and independence of Private Equity Wire’s partnership with EthicsGrade, the ESG AAA Awards will represent a kitemark of achievement and quality across this globally, societally, and ethically vital space.


How to enter?


Spanning 26 categories, managers can enter our awards using an application process that takes NUMBER minutes per category. Using a simple metric driven application process, managers can enter their details on Private Equity Wire’s and EthicsGrade’s specially designed platform.

Categories

Each category can be entered via a simple questionnaire – questions are based on industry feedback and the expertise of our data partner, EthicsGrade.


Managers can enter multiple fund and manager categories, with a varying set of questions applied to each distinct category.


The category with the fewest questions is, ‘Best corporate sustainability for portfolio company’, with 16, and the most are the ‘Best ESG firm’ categories with 26 each.


To make the judging process fair and transparent the model is skewed towards quantitative questions versus open and subjective ones.


Deadline for all entries is Friday, 19th August.
