ESG, Impact & Corporate Responsibility

ESG advisory and impact advisory

Prime offers a range of environment, social, governance (ESG) and impact focused services to our clients that complements our core legal and business advisory services. We support managers who are trying to incorporate ESG factors from a compliance perspective (e.g. developing a basic ESG policy) right through to managers that want to develop a more comprehensive impact-focused offer (e.g. creating Impact Funds).

We seek to serve the increasing range of investors who recognise the importance of ESG and impact factors, along with the widely recognised correlation of ESG-aligned investing with improved risk-adjusted returns for investors.

ESG advisory

Our range of ESG services includes strategy, oversight and assurance support.

Prime can support mangers in developing their ESG strategy, from putting together an ESG policy through to managing its implementation

We can provide enhanced oversight of ESG mandates and active investment policies, providing a robust and credible third party verification service for our clients.

Prime assesses managers’ ESG performance against the UN Principles for Responsible Investment.

Impact advisory

Our deep impact expertise means we can support impact-first organisations with developing theories of change that support them in delivering their impact, and we can provide end-to-end impact measurement services to help organisations, benchmark, monitor and improve their impact.

Corporate Responsibility

Businesses are increasingly expected to display strong corporate responsibility, both through a strong community contribution and consistent adherence to good governance principles.

Prime helps corporates to clarify their social responsibility objectives and to carry out appropriate due diligence or audits to review and improve ongoing performance.
