Our Impact

We are pleased to share our 2023 Impact & ESG Report, which highlights our firm and portfolio’s impact on climate, progress on diversity, equity, and inclusion in hiring, workplace policies, and more. We have also included details of our plans ahead.


As we strive for transparency and aim to further our contributions and impact, we look forward to a continued partnership with our portfolio companies, investors, and all of our stakeholders as we work together toward our vision for a sustainable and resilient future.

Together, we are building a better future

As a firm focused on sustainability, we recognize there is no magic bullet for addressing climate change. The Paris Agreement and achieving a 1.5°C trajectory, will take thousands of companies all meaningfully moving the needle on technology, innovation, and scale in their respective sectors. We benefit from, and aim to actively contribute to, what we call a “supercycle”— a 30–50-year shift in how we produce, deliver, consume, and power economic activity worldwide.
