In brief: ILPA ups involvement with renamed ESG data initiative

The CalPERS and Carlyle-initiated data harmonisation drive continues to gather sign-ups.

There are some updates on the ESG intiative launched last year by a CalPERS- and Carlyle-led consortium seeking to harmonise reporting around key ESG metrics:

  • It has changed its name from the ESG Data Convergence Project to the ESG Data Convergence Initiative (EDCI).
  • ILPA, the limited partners’ association, will play an expanded role as “secretariat” to the initiative, facilitating steering committee meetings and supporting committee governance.
  • It now has 195 LP and GP participants (up from around 100 in January of this year).

More information can be found on the ILPA website.
