Why conduct ESG Due Diligence?

Private market investors must integrate ESG into their investment process.


Investors Care

Don't Get Left Behind

  • Over 2/3 of globally surveyed LPs in 2022 said their organisations' investment policies include an ESG approach.

  • 85% of those LPs have an ESG policy fully or partially implemented in private equity.

  • 80% of LPs plan to increase ESG reporting to requests to GPs by 2025.


What's At Stake

Protect Investment Value

  • Failure to address ESG risks can cause revenue declines (e.g. negative press, customer boycotts).

  • Failure to address ESG risks can increase costs (e.g. regulatory fines, employee walkouts).

  • Failure to address ESG risks can hinder exits and capital raising (e.g. shareholder lawsuits, next buyer fears). 


Long-Term Value Potential

Enhance Returns

  • Energy and material resource optimization saves companies of all sizes hundreds of millions of dollars each year and provides margin boost and revenue acceleration.

  • Awaken's cost savings are amplified by multiple expansion generated from social and governance improvements during the investment period.
