ESG Management

Our Commitment

We work to understand the impacts of the companies in which we invest and believe that our understanding of ESG issues can improve our opportunities to create shared value. In line with this belief, we have made a public commitment to formally incorporate the consideration of ESG factors into our private markets investment processes.

These principles and guidelines serve as valuable platforms for formalizing and focusing our responsible investment efforts, raising internal awareness, and providing a common language and set of expectations for our investment partners

In 2009, we became signatories of the globally recognized voluntary framework of the United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), and helped lead the development of the Private Equity Growth Capital Council’s (PEGCC) Guidelines on Responsible Investment.

These principles and guidelines serve as valuable platforms for formalizing and focusing our responsible investment efforts, raising internal awareness, and providing a common language and set of expectations for our investment partners, our portfolio company management teams, and other stakeholders. Just as importantly, we see the value of interacting with and learning from others who share this commitment. Therefore, we work regularly with our peers in these communities to help develop tools and resources and to learn from each other.


Principles for Responsible Investment

In accordance with our own guidelines and the PRI, KKR believes we should seek to act in the best long-term interests of our beneficiaries.
