ESG Webinar - Q1 2023
Head of ESG, Colin Etnire discusses how BC Partners calculates and utilizes the greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint of its portfolio, with a particular focus on private equity. This data is used to help us report to frameworks such as the ESG Data Convergence Initiative (EDCI), Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB), the EU’s Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), and the Partnership for Carbon Accounting Financials (PCAF).
He is joined by Chris Snyder, North American Secretariat for PCAF, to discuss the value PCAF can provide LPs and other financial market participants. PCAF is a global partnership of financial institutions that work together to develop and implement a harmonized approach to assess and disclose GHG emissions associated with their loans and investments, and BC Partners is the first buyout firm to commit and report to its framework.
