Corporate responsibility is paramount for any business to succeed. StepStone is firmly committed to integrating ESG factors in our investment process, and within our own company.
As global investors overseeing more than $270 billion of private market allocations, we have a responsibility to the investors who entrust us with their capital and the 450+ employees who choose everyday to make StepStone the best company it can be. By signing on with the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investing and the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures, we aim to promote environmental sustainability, social responsibility, and fair and transparent corporate governance in private markets and with our stakeholders.
Since our founding, ESG considerations have been integral to our investment philosophy and process. Fundamentally, we believe effective management of ESG factors drives stakeholder returns. From an initial screening, to a comprehensive review by our ESG Work Groups and ESG Committee, we thoroughly vet every investment opportunity for its ESG risks and merits. This is a requirement before the Investment Committee can approve any investment.
Mandated by charter, our ESG Committee is a group of senior professionals who represent different asset classes, regions, and functional areas at the firm. Beyond continually improving how we account for ESG in our investment decision making, the Committee promotes new initiatives to drive excellence and sustainable business practices in our own operations.
