“Since the release of our last Sustainable Investment Survey report in October 2022, we have been busy with our sustainable investment research efforts. Using our proprietary Impact fund data set utilizing the Global Impact Investing Network’s (GIIN) IRIS+ taxonomy, we updated our reporting on fundraising trends in private Impact fund investing.
As a follow-up to 2022’s survey, we took some of the open-ended responses and wrote a report addressing the concerns and criticisms of ESG. In January, we published a piece on sustainable and digital infrastructure in the private markets, noting that infrastructure has not only been expanding as an area of investment, but it is increasingly looking to contribute sustainable solutions to areas like climate change and socioeconomic equality. Finally, we have brought on an emerging technology analyst focused on producing carbon & emissions tech and clean energy work for PitchBook clients.”
[COMMENTARY] The numbers provide great insight into the industry.
