Environmental, Social and Governance Practices / Environmental Practices

Our Planet. Our Responsibility.

We believe the transformative power of technology can help protect our planet – and create a brighter, more sustainable future. We do our part by measuring our environmental footprint, sharing reduction practices across our network of companies and continuously improving the overall ESG performance of our firm. Together, we can make a positive, lasting impact on our shared world.

Achieving Carbon Neutrality

At Vista, we acknowledge our responsibility in managing our operations with a focus on reducing our share of GHG emissions. Vista has engaged with an independent party to measure and offset our 2019 GHG emissions, becoming a carbon neutral firm.

Doing Our Part

To combat the industry’s emission growth, Vista launched a Sustainability Leadership Council (SLC) in 2020. Together with over 100 executives from our private equity and permanent capital portfolio of companies, the SLC shares reduction best practices, provides resources to simplify ESG management and reporting, and identifies and executes ESG value creation initiatives.

"The investment industry has tremendous capacity to improve ESG performance in the private sector, and enterprise software is well-positioned to drive social and environmental solutions. Vista is committed to leading these efforts."
