30 - 31 January 2024, London

Our ESG conference, co-hosted by Real Deals and The Drawdown brought together leading fund managers, institutional investors and expert advisers for an in-depth exploration of the latest ESG trends in European private equity.

As ESG continues to move up the agenda, private equity firms and their portfolio companies must learn to navigate an increasingly complex path to demonstrate their ESG credentials.

This year’s agenda covered all the key themes for 2023 including the latest updates on regulatory changes, the challenges of ensuring data integrity and consistency of reporting, the importance of DEI within both GPs and their portfolio companies and the role of ESG throughout the whole deal cycle – from valuation through to exit.

Over 190 leading ESG professionals from across the industry join us in London on 31 January and 1 February for two days packed with discussion and debate.
