Private Equity: BVCA updates its Guide to Responsible Investment

The British Venture Capital Association (BVCA) has released an update to its Guide to Responsible Investment. The publication, originally published in 2009, seeks to improve firms' understanding of environmental, social and governance (ESG) risks and opportunities, showing how these can be managed within a structured investment framework.

The previous edition of the Guide focused primarily on ESG issues at the pre-investment stage whereas the updated version of the Guide, which has been produced in conjunction with PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and Waterman Group PLC, takes the guidance to a more detailed and practical level, covering not only the pre-investment stage but also the ownership and exit phases of private equity and venture capital investments.
