About Malk Partners
Malk Partners is the foremost consultancy advising private equity firms on creating and protecting value through environmental, social, and governance (ESG) management. We guide our clients throughout the fund and investment cycle to mitigate risk, secure opportunities, and satisfy their investors.
Our reputation is built from our singular focus on ESG management and the fact that we exclusively advise private equity investors. We understand our clients’ processes, collaborate closely with other due diligence vendors, calibrate our findings to a materiality threshold, and work efficiently with management and deal teams.
Malk has advised many of the world’s most respected investment firms, helping them to define ESG goals, conduct ESG due diligence reviews, and support portfolio companies in mitigating ESG risks. Our fully-customized services and solutions keep our clients doing what they do best: buying, growing, and selling businesses.
Our mission is to provide our clients with the deep expertise and reliable service they need in order to mitigate risks, preserve and enhance reputation, and satisfy stakeholder concerns. We are committed to helping our clients establish ESG management frameworks and investment processes that are deeply aligned with existing investment practices.
Malk is a proud signatory of the United Nations-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), having joined the organization in 2012. As a signatory, Malk was invited to participate in the Private Equity GP Guide Working Group and contributed to the publication, "Integrating ESG in Private Equity - A Guide for General Partners." Malk is committed to upholding the PRI's Six Principles and supporting our clients in upholding the same principles.
We are a carbon neutral company across Scope I, II, & III emissions. We reduce our carbon impact as much as possible and purchase offsets to achieve full neutrality. The purchase of offsets contributes to afforestation and reforestation projects around the world.
