Global Challenges. Global Solutions.

Whether changing regulations, greater demands for transparency, or increasing environmental risks, in today’s world, businesses and society as a whole are facing unprecedented challenges on a global scale.

In the 2015 ESG and Citizenship Report, we identified five ESG-related challenges that affect our companies or investment strategies. We continue to believe that these themes remain relevant. In the 2016 ESG and Citizenship Update, we have highlighted additional examples where these challenges intersect with or affect our portfolio companies, and in some cases, where they are responding with innovative and adaptive solutions.

As a global investor with a commitment to responsible investment, we draw on our experience in the industry, our network of investors and nongovernmental organization partners, and our work with a range of portfolio companies to address these challenges.
