Private Credit Funds can join the EDCI as access-only members

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.

The Steering Committee has now decided to extend membership to private credit investors on an access-only basis – which means that Private Credit firms can access EDCI benchmark without having to contribute data (for now – given the challenges around data de-duplication)
