Blackstone's 2021 ESG Update: An Integrated Approach to ESG
This update will detail some of the important advancements we’ve made in scaling our ESG program and outline other efforts where we have more work to do.
Blackstone believes that Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) principles are crucial to developing strong, resilient companies and assets that deliver long-term value for our investors. We are committed to integrating ESG within our investment process and operating philosophy.
Our approach is grounded in a responsibility to our investors to be careful stewards of capital. We have long been implementing a number of initiatives designed to make our companies stronger and more resilient. Many of these, like promoting sustainability and diversity, are today considered core components of ESG. We are confident that the more we weave ESG factors into our corporate purpose and performance, the more value we will be able to deliver — for our investors, our portfolio companies and the communities we serve.
