Responsibility / 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. Vista aims to measure, reduce and offset the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of its internal operations and enable our portfolio companies to do the same.

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 GHG emissions by 50% by 2030 and emitting net zero GHG emissions across the portfolio by 2050.

Climate Action Report

Vista Climate Pledge

To operationalize our net zero goal, we established the Vista Climate Pledge on Earth Day in 2022. The pledge consists of a four-part commitment:

• Measuring GHG emissions annually
• Setting a GHG reduction target
• Reducing GHG emissions annually
• Offsetting GHG emissions annually

All majority-controlled private equity and permanent capital portfolio companies have access to a GHG measurement platform and best practice guidance for GHG emissions measurement and reductions.

Managing Our Footprint

Vista leverages enterprise software to measure GHG emissions in accordance with the World Resources Institute’s Greenhouse Gas Protocol corporate standard. Since 2019, we have measured and offset our own operational GHG emissions.
