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

While many commitments to environmental, social and governance goals are still rhetorical, Carlyle Group’s contributions stand out in their maturity. How do you measure portfolio company carbon emissions and reduction across funds, so that limited partners can make apples-to-apples comparisons? Carlyle does not simply propose its own answer; the firm is leading an effort to create an industry standard, partnering with other general partners, such as Blackstone Group, and limited partners, such as the California Public Employees’ Retirement System and the Canada Pension Plan Investment Board. Boston Consulting Group was tapped to aggregate the data.
