ACA Vantage for ESG

A one-stop solution for ESG portfolio monitoring: scan company ESG profiles, collect data, report, and benchmark.

The Challenge

The focus on Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) has risen rapidly in recent years, with investors and global regulators demanding greater transparency and reporting. If you manage a private equity, private credit, or collateralized asset fund, it can be challenging to meet these growing expectations for your portfolio because you may find that:

  • Portfolios vary greatly in industries, requiring customized metrics and monitoring. 

  • Investors seek reporting on differing metrics. 

  • Information may be limited or unavailable due to investment percentage or influence.  

  • Deciphering the similarities and differences of ESG frameworks and reporting standards such as Principals for Responsible Investment (PRI), Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), Sustainable Financial Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), and Global Real Estate Sustainability Benchmark (GRESB) is challenging and time consuming.

  • Aggregating data across the portfolio seems overwhelming without a system, and even after gathering data, you may not understand how it can be helpful to your firm and your portfolio.   

The Solution: Turn to ACA Vantage for ESG

Our team of ESG experts will help you select monitoring criteria that:  

  • aligns with ESG commitments and frameworks;  

  • meets investor expectations; and,  

  • is material to your portfolio company’s industries.
