EQT boss: Being an ESG leader will pay off

Companies sold over the next few years will be considered more valuable if they have started the transition to a low-emission society, says Cilia Ingdahl, head of the EQT foundation.

EQT AB was the first private equity firm that committed to living up to the Paris Agreement by setting research-based climate goals, including targets for portfolio companies.

"With roots in the Wallenberg family and responsible ownership in our DNA, it is natural for us to think long-term. We believe that companies sold before 2030 will be valued at a higher price if they are well on the way to transitioning to a low-emission society. This is not just the right decision to make, but a decision that strengthens our ability to create value for society as a majority owner," says Cilia Indahl, head of the EQT foundation.
