Responsible Investment

Responsible investment remains at the forefront of the private equity agenda. Whilst demonstrating commitment to Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles was once only considered a reputational matter, both LPs and GPs are now increasingly addressing these issues to protect and increase value.

As part of the BVCA’s on going efforts to ensure that our members have access to the best training opportunities and keep abreast of these developments, we have launched a Responsible Investment e-Learning Course.

The BVCA Responsible Investment e-Learning Course is formed of a number of modules, each relating to a particular stage of the investment process. For individuals working within a deal team these are between 60 and 90 minutes in total and allow users to save their progress and return at a later time. Short quizzes provide a pass/fail grade, with successful users granted a BVCA certificate.

The course contains modules which – when taken together – cover the sections of the BVCA Guide to Responsible Investment:

  • Introduction to Responsible Investment
  • Sustainability at the house level
  • Reporting and fundraising
  • Pre-Investment
  • The Holding Period
  • Exit

For Non-Member bookings please contact the Training Team.
Please note: the above prices are excluding VAT. All licenses are valid for 1 year.
