2022 Sustainability Report

Our 2022 Sustainability Report describes how we are working to create and protect value in our investment activities and within our operations through a focused effort. We are proud of the progress we have made since the publication of our first public ESG report in 2011, and we continue to aim for transparency in this 12th installment."

About our 2022 Sustainability Report

We have aimed to disclose our performance transparently and consistently and to enhance the quality of our disclosures since the publication of our inaugural environmental, social, and governance (ESG) report in 2011. Building on our 2021 Sustainability Report, published in June 2022, this report includes two main sections:

Sustainable Investing covers sustainability-related activities in our investments.
Sustainable Operations covers sustainability-related activities at the Firm level.
It is important to recognize that this work is not “one size fits all.” As this year’s report describes — and as we have described in the past 11 reports before it — we seek to identify material risks and potential value creation opportunities as part of our investment process, which are based on a number of factors, including the company’s industry, where it operates, and its stakeholders."
Ken Mehlman Global Head of Public Affairs and Co-Head of KKR Global Impact
