Corporate Social Responsibility

As one of the world’s largest alternative asset managers, we are uniquely positioned to make a positive impact through our investments and to strengthen the communities in which we live and work.

OUR APPROACH

We believe it is not only possible to do good while doing well – it’s imperative.

Changing the Status Quo

We are always seeking a better approach – from better tools to better services – to the challenges that face our clients, our people and the communities we serve. A good company challenges the status quo; a great company changes it for the better.

Integrating ESG

Environmental, Social and Governance principles have been integral to Blackstone’s corporate strategy since our founding. We are committed to responsible investing practices and incorporate them into everything we do.

Empowering Our People

It is not enough to help others in need. Social responsibility starts right at home with the thousands of people at Blackstone who are committed to giving back. That’s why we’re so dedicated to our people. The more we do for them, the more they can do for their communities.

ESG principles have always been at the core of our business – we’ve spent years promoting sustainability across our portfolio, prioritizing our people, and practicing good governance. By factoring ESG into every facet of our operations and investment process, we can continue to have a positive impact on our companies and the communities where we live and work.

Reducing Environmental Impact

We have a responsibility to leave the world a better place for future generations. Our approach to environmental sustainability focuses on measurable operational interventions to reduce resource usage across our portfolio and investments in large-scale renewable energy opportunities around the world.

“Every place that you focus your efforts can see a change. Your passion can be used for good. People are going to benefit from all that you do – so go out and do it.”

PRESIDENT AND CHIEF OPERATING OFFICER

Fostering Social Responsibility

It takes more than capital to build great companies – it takes great people. We believe that when companies take care of their employees and the people in their communities, the benefits are immense.
