The Future 40: ESG Innovators showcases alternative fund managers and advisers that are leading the way in transforming the industry’s approach to ESG.
The Future 40 ESG selection is based on nominations from across the industry – we received in excess of 100 submissions for this inaugural ESG list, showcasing the breadth and depth of innovation in that space throughout the global private equity landscape. 

Each entry was carefully reviewed by our panel of industry specialists, who had the tough task of selecting the 40 standouts in a compelling field. The judges paid particular attention to the innovation displayed by the firms and individuals across several key areas, including implementation in both the portfolio and the organisation itself, reporting and wider stakeholder engagement.
