Our Approach to ESG

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) considerations are integrated into the policies and principles that govern our business and reflect our commitment to sustainable growth.

Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) has long been an investor strategy, but it’s much more than that.

We believe that excelling in all three areas boosts a company’s reputation and productivity. Doing so is not just the right thing to do but also the smart thing to do. Businesses that become ESG leaders see better bottom-line results as well. As an organization, we continue to challenge ourselves to improve our ESG performance for the benefit of our colleagues and, ultimately, the communities in which we operate.

ESG Environmental Issues

We take environmental issues to heart.

As an ESG leader and a part of the Blackstone organization, which, too, has long championed ESG, we understand how important it is to not just “talk the talk” but to “walk the walk” when it comes to environmental sustainability. That means we are continually looking to improve our own organization.

In March 2021, Sphera officially signed a commitment letter to be part of the Science Based Targets initiative joining over 1,000 other organizations that have committed to reducing emissions. → Read how Sphera can help you set science-based targets.

In October 2021, Sphera committed to joining the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC). The UNGC is a voluntary initiative where some 12,000 organizations from 160-plus nations have pledged to incorporate universally accepted sustainability principles into their companies.
