Mergers & Acquisitions names the 2021 PE Innovators in ESG, including, Apollo.

Apollo evaluates investments’ ESG propositions from the start—it’s a component of firmwide due diligence work. Those initial assessments inform a process that continues through to portfolio company disposition. Firms submit yearly data and narrative reports that “further refine existing engagement strategies with each portfolio company,” Apollo says. That’s no small feat for the New York-based fund with $481 billion under management.
