Gnarus Partners with SIP and Blank Rome on ESG Webinar

Gnarus Advisors and its ESG collaborator Strategic Impact Partners are joining Blank Rome LLP to produce what is expected to be the first in a series of webinars providing C-suite leaders and Board directors with essential intel and insights into the range of issues involved in ESG practices for Private Markets: private companies, family-held enterprises, their trusted advisors, and their P-E and VC partners.

Join us on July 20 (12:00–1:00 p.m. EDT | 9:00–10:00 a.m. PDT) as we present a snapshot of the rapidly emerging ESG for Private Markets. Gnarus Principal Chris Warshaw and Chairman Stephen Sellick will join SIP Managing Partner Art Stewart and attorneys Yelena Barychev, Deborah Greenspan, and Stacy Louizos from Blank Rome to offer fresh insights into the convergence of legal and business strategy in ESG for Private Markets.

Environmental, Social, and Governance (“ESG”) factors have become increasingly popular as more investors and customers seek to align their investments with their values, and stakeholders are increasingly recognizing the critical role these elements play in driving sustainable growth and long-term value creation. As a result, ESG has transitioned from being a niche consideration to a central component of business strategy and decision-making in the private sector.

Key topics will include:

The New Terrain of Governance, Leadership, and Risk

  • New dynamics in the relationship between PE partners and legacy owners
  • The changing nature of risks and liabilities
  • Evolving fiduciary responsibilities at the governance level

ESG as Value Creation and Enhanced Exit Optionality

  • Creating new business opportunities with ESG
  • Leveraging compliance and standards conformance for competitive advantage
  • Assessing the impact of ESG on company valuation, EBITDA, margins, and profitability

Private Market ESG in Action

  • Real-world case studies in private market ESG
  • Practical advice for driving positive change and implementing ESG strategies
  • Managing the implementation process
