How can we help you?

In the latest instalment of our multi-year research into UK mid-market M&A, we focus on environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues and the increasing importance of ESG decision making in mid-market M&A. 

ESG in Mergers and Acquisitions  

The insights our sources have shared provide a valuable window into how the role of ESG is impacting on M&A dealmaking in the mid-market.  

Corporate ESG strategies vary from organisation-to-organisation, dependent upon size, sector, growth stage, leadership and other stakeholder priorities. The increase in reporting metrics shows the financial benefits can be achieved with ESG as a value driver and the results of our annual sentiment survey have shown that ESG continues to play a role in decision-making.  

The report also provides commentary on the how:  

  • ESG is making an impact on dealmaking. 
  • ESG is becoming a distinct area of expertise in the due diligence process.
  • ESG factors are ranking when assessing a potential M&A target.
