Results

The KKR Green Portfolio Program continues to deliver a financial and environmental impact. The results issued in October 2014 mark the sixth time that the program has announced progress from its participating private equity portfolio companies.

Since its inception in 2008, 27 portfolio companies have taken part in the Green Portfolio Program. In 2014, 21 of the participating KKR private equity portfolio companies released results.1 Collectively, through their efforts in key environmental performance areas, these companies have achieved an estimated $1.2 billion in financial impact and avoided approximately 2.3 million metric tons of GHG emissions, 6.3 million tons of waste, and 27 million cubic meters of water use.2

The above are all the portfolio companies participating in the Green Portfolio Program. These specific portfolio companies identified are not representative of all of the portfolio companies purchased, sold or recommended for KKR Funds and vehicles, and it should not be assumed that the investment in the portfolio company identified was or will be profitable. The reported impact of initiatives of the Green Portfolio Program is based on internal analysis of KKR and/or KKR Capstone and information provided by the applicable portfolio company. Impacts of such initiatives are estimates that have not been verified by a third party and are not necessarily reported according to established voluntary standards or protocols. KKR does not guarantee the accuracy, adequacy or completeness of such information. They may also reflect the influence of external factors, such as macroeconomic or industry trends. There is no guarantee that results shown will be replicated in the future and actual results may be better or worse in future years. Please review the methodology and terms used in the Green Portfolio Program for more information.

Notes:

  1. A.T.U., PRIMEDIA, Inc., Sealy, and TDC A/S have exited the KKR portfolio and thus are no longer reporting results into the Green Portfolio Program. Bharti Infratel’s results are not included as part of the aggregate program results (see footnote on Bharti Infratel page).
  2. Results from declines in efficiency are not included in portfolio company summaries (see methodology document), but are included in the aggregate data. Therefore, estimated environmental and financial benefits in the summary table may sum to more than the reported "total" results, which takes into account the impacts from decreases in efficiency. In order to aggregate the results across participating portfolio companies, at some companies, metric tons of waste was converted to short tons of waste and units of measurement for water use were converted to cubic meters.
