Impact Strategy 2022

Impact Strategy 2022 is a feeder fund that invests substantially all of its assets into a KKR managed Global Impact strategy (the “Fund” or “KKR”). The Fund will invest in businesses focused on mitigating and adapting to climate change, helping people across the globe achieve learning and employment outcomes, allow for more sustainable living across cities, circular economies, and consumption, and enhance inclusion across a number of areas – with the goal of broadening and deepening their positive impact. The Fund will invest in businesses that contribute solutions to specific UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) and generate impacts that are measurable and reportable, either directly through its core business model, or indirectly through the way the company differentiates its core business model. Additionally, KKR will seek to improve a company’s ESG performance during its period of ownership, through monitoring and reporting on ESG related performance. KKR intends to work with each portfolio company to appropriately integrate and monitor progress on material ESG issues and impact performance aligned with the UN SDGs.

All of the Fund’s investments will be subject to the Fund’s sustainable investment objective. KKR will ensure that each investment does no significant harm to other environmental or social objectives by applying the most relevant indicators (quantitative and qualitative) for adverse impacts on sustainability factors. The Fund will also check for each investment that companies have processes and compliance mechanisms to monitor compliance with the UN Global Compact principles and Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, and for related violations.

KKR will seek to improve a company’s ESG performance during the ownership period and will measure and report on this as guided by third party frameworks, primarily using data from portfolio companies. KKR will assess the good governance practices of each investment as part of its due diligence. At the outset and on an on-going basis, KKR will seek to ensure that each investment has sound management structures in place, including in relation to executive compensation, and has a risk framework to prevent illicit business practices or misconduct.
