Convergence of Private Credit With ESG and Impact Investing

Investor interest in private credit remains strong and appears to be growing, while demand for incorporating environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria into the investment process has also increased dramatically in recent years. Those converging trends were discussed in a recent CreditFlux program that explored the current role of ESG and impact investing in private credit; examples of how ESG is being incorporated into private credit transactions; and the likely direction of travel going forward. Moderated by Hogan Lovells partner Matthew Schernecke, the program featured Karen Halliday, partner and head of capital formation and investor solutions at Varagon Capital Partners; Michael Korengold, president and CEO at Enhanced Capital Partners; and Oliver Fadly, principal and head of private debt investments at NEPC, LLC.
