Transparency in Focus
Being a good corporate citizen means investing responsibly and making transparency part of everything we do.
2016 CORPORATE CITIZENSHIP REPORT
At Carlyle, we most often see sustainability efforts adding value in four core areas:
Considering the environmental, social and governance (ESG) implications of our investments enables us to be good stewards of the capital committed to us by our investors as well as being good corporate citizens. Please see our Guidelines for Responsible Investment here.
Carlyle has a clear and effective framework that enables us to uphold the highest ethical and business standards across the firm. Maintaining Carlyle’s good name and the good names of our investors is paramount.
Diverse teams and experiences bring tremendous value to our firm and the alternative asset industry. We work to cultivate an environment rich in different backgrounds, perspectives and experiences. We also encourage our employees to get involved where they live, work and invest through our volunteer and wealth sharing programs.
Environmental considerations play a significant – and growing – role in our investment practices and the operations of our portfolio companies. As part of our investment process, we evaluate environmental risks and seek opportunities for value creation through sustainability.
Our investments have a meaningful impact on hundreds of thousands of employees and on the communities in which we invest. As part of our investment process, we evaluate workforce issues, including labor issues, health and safety, and employee benefits.
Carlyle is committed to responsible investing, sustainability and transparency. We published our first Corporate Citizenship Report in 2010, the first by a major alternative asset management firm.
