London Launch of Managing ESG Risk in the Supply Chains of Private Companies and Assets


The Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) is pleased to launch Managing ESG risk in the supply chains of private companies and assets. It aims to empower private equity, infrastructure and real estate investors to improve the risk profile of their portfolios and maximise their returns by promoting effective management of ESG risks in the supply chains of their portfolio companies.

Companies are increasingly expected to understand and manage their exposure to ESG risks in the supply chain. If unidentified and unmanaged, these issues can cause environmental and social damage and severe harm to the reputations, operations and financial performance of investee companies and their investors. However, investors don’t often systematically or explicitly articulate their expectations for how investee companies should manage ESG risks and opportunities in their supply chains. Join this event for a discussion on why and how investors can engage with their portfolio companies to understand and mitigate these risks, including an overview of the guidance. 

Who should attend?

  • General Partners, Limited Partners, and direct investors investing in private equity, infrastructure and real estate in both OECD and emerging markets
  • Service providers
