Questions about private equity

Financial-Sector-Science-Based-Targets-Guidance (22year.Feb) 56page first Paragraph
For the time being, private debt and venture capital are considered optional for private equity firms.

SBTi-Private-Equity-Sector-Guidance(21year.nov) 38page
Venture capital, equired: 100% coverage of PCs that meet the size, shares, years of existence and board seat condition

Which one is right? According to the latest version, we can private equity to optional??

Hi Viego,

Thanks for reaching out.

Private equity (PE) firms must cover their PE investments (including venture capital) with targets based on the PE Guidance, and as indicated by the footnote for this asset class in Table 5.2 of the FI Guidance. Non-PE firms can also cover PE investments or follow the FI Guidance, under which they are currently optional, though this will be subject to future updates.

Thanks,
Howard
