Corporate Integrity/ESG

For Private Markets
Private Companies, Family Businesses, Private Equity and Venture Capital Groups


SIP helps private market operators maximize ESG opportunities for strategic competitive advantage, new value creation, market leadership, and enhanced exit options.

ESG presents private companies and family businesses with opportunities for growth and development beyond what public companies can leverage in their ESG programs. Public entities, often larger and multinational, have greater impositions of accountability, scrutiny, and regulation to manage with the added complexity of bureaucratic structures. Allocations for ESG innovations can often conflict with the resources needed to support transparency, disclosure, and compliance that comes with operating in a shareholder-based market.

Private companies and family enterprises can execute a more proportionate, agenda-specific use of ESG as a proactive toolbox for new value creation and upscaling competitive advantage. Their brands have historically had to rely more on living out purpose, values, and legacy in the customer experience without the benefit of share value and stock performance to drive market confidence and leadership.

As new business practice standards and stakeholder expectations transform the competitive market landscape - including broadening the notion of what constitutes risk and liability - implementing a proportionate ESG strategy will reduce that risk, build your long-term resilience, and better equip operations and other functionality.

Private companies and family businesses by nature have an ability to move with more singularity of focus, speed, and agility. Using ESG as a competitive differentiator enables the pursuit of financial goals with less resistance and greater trust from more lasting stakeholder consent.

Don’t mistake values as politics. ESG is not about injecting politics or personal opinions into your business. It’s about aligning the methods and means to revenue performance, EBITDA, profitability, and valuation to the drivers of the ‘license to operate’ in the new paradigm of stakeholder capitalism.
