Diligend and eFront, a part of Blackrock, collaborate to streamline collection of private markets environmental, social, and governance (ESG) data
Private markets are notoriously opaque and data transparency has always been a challenge, particularly where ESG data is concerned.
eFront recently formed a consortium of GPs and LPs and worked on defining a universal questionnaire covering key ESG tracking metrics across a portfolio of private assets.
Diligend’s strong presence in alternatives due diligence, combined with the eFront platform’s ESG framework, further enables asset allocators (LPs), asset managers (GPs), and portfolio companies (PortCos) to report on relevant ESG credentials in a streamlined workflow.
