It generates actionable, performance-based insights based on comparable ESG data from more than 4,000 private companies – with participating firms from all over the world and across all sectors.

The EDCI allows GPs and their portfolio companies to benchmark their current position, streamline ESG data requests from LPs and Private Creditors, and generate progress toward ESG improvements.

What EDCI members say about the initiative

Hear what members say about the EDCI

What does it mean for General Partners to be part of this initiative?

To participate, GPs agree to:

  • Determine funds that will take part in the initiative (while we recognize GPs may start with a subset of their investment strategies, the expectation is this will increase over time, as feasible)
  • On a best-efforts basis, track EDCI metrics, with an emphasis on mandatory metrics
  • Abide by the EDCI Metrics Guidance to the extent possible and explain deviations
  • As requested, provide EDCI data to LPs, preferably using the Data Submission Template
  • Submit anonymized data to the EDCI for participating portfolio companies by April 30 each year
  • Be publicly associated with the initiative
  • Encourage LPs to align with the EDCI
  • Voluntary: serve on working groups or self-nominate to join the Steering Committee
