News: Video guide on our ESG Toolkit for Fund Managers

News from CDC
21 December 2016

Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), an organisation supported by the UN, has produced a video guiding people through our Toolkit for Fund Managers - a free online resource aimed at supporting investment professionals to introduce the highest sustainability standards.

The Toolkit aims to be both a practical building block for the development of a customised environmental, social and governance (ESG) management system, and an easy-to-use reference guide for assessing and managing ESG risks, impacts and opportunities.

The PRI has developed this short video (less than 15 minutes) to demonstrate exactly how people can use the Toolkit to best effect when developing their own approaches to responsible investment in private equity.

You can watch the video on the player below or by using this link.
