Creating and Protecting Value through Sustainability

KKR’s focus on sustainability is rooted in our commitment to value creation and value protection. The ways we integrate sustainability into our investment and business activities — how and where we invest, how we support our companies, and how we operate as a business — are built around being fiduciaries and working to deliver long-term value for our clients. By doing this work, we strive to support the financial well-being of the tens of millions of people who rely on us.

Working with portfolio companies to mitigate risk and future-proof performance in areas that can create and protect long-term value such as employee engagement, energy efficiency, cybersecurity, and others.

Investing Behind Trends

Investing behind sustainability-related trends with macro tailwinds, such as the energy transition, supply chain resiliency, circularity, and workforce development.
