eQ was awarded the Silver Award for ’Best ESG Private Equity Initiative’ (LP)

Private Equity Exchange & Award

Earlier this week, eQ was honoured to receive recognition for its ESG work – the Silver Award for ’Best ESG Private Equity initiative (LP)’ at the Private Equity Exchange & Awards in Paris. A large group of well-known private equity players across Europe apply the awards and the winners are determined by a jury of highly experienced leaders in the private equity industry.

 eQ has been doing ESG work systematically for a long time, but especially the last couple of years have been active and a lot of concrete development work has been done. eQ has developed its ESG process systematically and works closely with fund managers. In addition, eQ shares and develops the best practices together with fund managers. One example of such work is ESG-related webinars for fund managers, where the results of eQ's responsible investing survey are shared with benchmarking, and fund managers and/or portfolio companies share their own best practices. This recognition received and positive feedback from the fund managers encourages to continue active work going forward.
