Creating Sustainable Value
Learn how KKR is working to create sustainable value by addressing environmental, social, and governance (ESG) challenges and opportunities in our private equity portfolio. August 30, 2014.
We believe that the thoughtful management of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) issues is smart business and see it as an essential part of long-term success in a rapidly changing world. KKR is committed to investing responsibly by integrating material ESG considerations into our private markets investment processes.
Companies that carefully manage ESG risks and opportunities today should be better situated in the future as diminishing resources, changing consumer demands, and increased regulation are expected to pose greater challenges and opportunities.
We believe that our capital, operational capabilities, and long-term ownership model position us to be part of the solution. We are committed to working together – as one firm – to manage ESG factors in our diligence process and in the management of our investments through a series of proactive programs and ongoing support.
We will continue to thoughtfully approach the ESG opportunities and challenges that we face and look forward to finding new ways to create sustainable value for our partners.
