Investment Consultants can join the EDCI to advise EDCI member LPs

The EDCI’s mission is to drive convergence around meaningful environmental, social, and governance metrics for the private markets. 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.

What does it mean for Investment Consultants to be part of this initiative?

To participate, Investment Consultants agree to:

  • On a best-efforts basis, where IC has relevant and/or overlapping ESG data requests, align definitions with the EDCI’s definitions
  • Encourage non-EDCI LP clients (and underlying GPs) to align with this effort
  • On a best-efforts basis, encourage additional industry efforts to drive convergence around ESG information and ESG data requests
  • Use the benchmark (or insights derived from the benchmark) externally only with LP clients that are current EDCI members (in their role as an Investment Consultant to these LPs)
  • Be publicly associated with the effort
