How important is ESG in dealmaking?

Share This Post

Today, a growing number of acquirers would not dream of making an acquisition without considering the ESG risk the deal may encounter, which they consider to be material to the performance of both company and investor.

It is clear that ESG is now a crucial element to dealmaking.

ESG comprises a whole new area of company performance that is subject to due diligence when it comes to M&A and as such, businesses are having to commit more time, resources and money to gathering ESG data both for their own analysis and also for investors who require this information.

Companies are now routinely employ environmental consultants early in deal processes to meet anticipated requirements both internally and from third-party stakeholders.

For private equity firms, ESG has become an essential part of the dealmaking process that can increase the value of a target company.

And ESG is also an important factor when it comes to exiting companies. It is seen as adding value and an opportunity to unlock capital and there is a 10-15% uplift in exit multiples for businesses that have started decarbonising.
