Four decades ago, environmentalism fought on the cultural margins of society. Today, however, citizens and consumers alike are demanding an environmental conscience from companies, and most major corporations heed their environmental impact. Some companies go green in small ways, others change their entire business structure, and others choose simply to make their business more effective and more green.
KKR is a private equity firm that partnered with the Environmental Defense Fund four years ago to create their Green Program. KKR’s Green Portfolio Program approaches environmentalism from a new, business-savvy perspective. KKR examines how the companies in its portfolio are performing environmentally, and they assess their impact based on several key performance areas, such as water, waste, and forest resources.
