How to measure ESG impact across investment strategies
Oak Hill Advisors (OHA) is a leading alternative investment firm with $57B under management. For more than 30 years, OHA has successfully navigated the private, distressed, special situations, liquid, structured credit, and real asset credit markets in North America, Europe, and other geographies.
Integrating Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) factors is a key consideration for OHA in its investment process
As part of its focus on ESG factors & sustainability, and in recognition of the increased risk climate change poses to investment returns, OHA is committed to accurately measuring and managing its climate impact.
With Persefoni, OHA found that they could meet the challenges of measuring their footprint and as part of this collaboration, Persefoni was able to work with OHA to pioneer a new fund benchmarking functionality.
We view our partnership with Persefoni as an important step in furthering our climate action plan. This data will serve as a baseline by which OHA will formulate plans for overall emissions reductions and targeted engagement with borrowers.

Decarbonization: Definition, Examples, and Why It’s Needed
Decarbonization is the process of reducing or completely eliminating carbon emissions. In this case, we refer to decarbonization when talking about the efforts to lower carbon emissions on a global scale.
Decarbonization is crucial for the global race towards net zero as outlined in The Paris Agreement. Current action is not enough, with global average atmospheric carbon dioxide hitting a new high in 2021, The world continues to produce carbon much faster than nature can absorb it, resulting in an excess of the greenhouse effect rapidly warming the earth.
