OIM’s external advisors for private markets integrate a comprehensive analysis of ESG issues into their due diligence process. The due diligence process includes a comprehensive review of an investment sponsor’s commitment to and implementation of ESG principles.
During the planning and due diligence process, the OIM Alternatives Team and their respective advisers requests the completion of an ESG questionnaire for prospective investments. An internal ESG review occurs in the later stage of our investment process and is critical in the final analysis when presented at the internal investment committees
Specifically, the Office of Investment Management (OIM) along with its external advisers, utilize a tailored propriatary ESG questionaire in their due diligence and selection process. OIM's external advisers are members of PRI, GRESB, and AIC. For the private real estate portfolio, the teams monitors LEED and BREEAM compliance through our partnership with GRESB.
