Dry Powder: The Private Equity Podcast
“ESG can sometimes feel like a never-ending list of new issues,” says Jenny Davis-Peccoud, head of Bain’s Global Sustainability & Corporate Responsibility practice.
“You can start with carbon and then it’s plastics and then it’s water and then it’s deforestation and then it’s working conditions and then it’s diversity, equity and inclusion.”
That’s just for starters. In fact, Jenny can point you to more than 570 indicators of ESG performance, but she insists that what really matters is keeping your ESG strategy simple.
She’ll explain how she helps clients pick their way through a veritable forest of indicators and how they discover the missing links between ESG and value.
In our new podcast series, Bain's Hugh MacArthur interviews leading experts on the trends and opportunities that will redefine the private equity industry.
