In January 2018 Ethical Consumer viewed KKR's Sustainability website, kkresg.com, for the company's environmental report.
A 2016 ESG and Citizenship Update was viewed which talked about its commitments to reducing its impacts through its investments.
It stated "The framework for tracking our ESG management performance is aligned with the United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). It is largely qualitative in nature as it focuses on the integration of ESG principles throughout the investment process."
While the company had qualitive targets for addressing ESG issues through its investments it did not have any discussion about its own environmental impacts such as energy usage, employee travel or paper use. KKR therefore was not considered to have demostrated a reasonable understanding of its environmental impacts. Nor did the company had two dated and quantified future environmental targets.
Overall it received Ethical Consumer's worst rating for environmental reporting.
