Impact Investing and ESG

GLG partners with private sector clients leveraging capital markets to power and scale social progress.

We work with clients across investment strategies to maximize both financial and social returns, helping quantify the long-term value that investments can create for a range of stakeholders – including customers, employees, and communities.


GLG facilitates Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) diligence and initiatives by providing access to leading social and climate scientists, human rights lawyers, racial justice advocates, sustainable supply chain managers, and many other related experts.

How We Can Help

As private equity investors experience comparable and often greater financial returns through impact investments, we support clients across the impact investing lifecycle, including thesis development, origination, diligence, impact measurement, and value creation. We help clients identify opportunities to innovate in all areas – from raw materials, to supply chain management, to leadership and board diversity – enabling them to invest at scale for financial and social returns.

Origination-phase research on aquaculture in sub-Saharan Africa, including market dynamics, investment structures, and future outlook.

We support the in-depth ESG research, analysis, and advocacy efforts of investment managers to advance positive social and environmental change. Our experts provide insight into ESG strategy development, alignment, and integration, as well as how to use ESG as a performance benchmark and risk management tool.
