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 and offsetting GHG emissions annually at the firm and partnering with our portfolio companies to drive climate action. Together, we can make a positive, lasting impact on our shared world.

Committed to Net Zero

Vista is proud to be one of the first North American private equity firms to join the Net Zero Asset Managers initiative. In doing so, we are committed to reducing private equity and permanent capital portfolio company emissions by 50% by 2030 and emitting net zero GHG emissions across the portfolio by 2050.

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."
