KKR ESG & Citizenship Report


About Our ESG, Impact, and Citizenship Reporting

KKR has been committed to consistent and transparent reporting since 2011 and has published nine ESG Reports to-date. This ESG, impact, and citizenship reporting website provides an account of our activities as of June 30, 2020. It builds on our 2018 ESG, Impact and Citizenship Report, the ninth such document addressing our responsible investment approach and progress. For more detail and to view supplemental materials and past reports, visit the Resource Center.

Guiding Frameworks

We seek to align our reporting efforts with leading frameworks and methodologies. As a signatory to the voluntary framework of the United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), we organize our responsible investment key performance indicators around the PRI’s six principles. To foster dialogue about responsible investment policies and practices with our fund investors, KKR publicly shares our responses to the PRI Limited Partners’ Responsible Investment Due Diligence Questionnaire, available at When reporting, we consider the Global Reporting Initiative principles for defining content and quality.


We evaluate ESG issues with respect to several asset classes; thus, our reporting describes the initiatives and the integration of ESG issues in the investment processes for both our private equity investment process and private equity portfolio companies as well as for select non-private equity asset classes such as energy real assets, infrastructure, real estate, and credit, unless otherwise noted. As used in our reporting, “portfolio company” refers to the companies held in our private markets funds, unless otherwise noted.

All information and data in this reporting website are as of June 30, 2020, unless otherwise noted.
