FTSE 100 private equity firm 3i is committed to taking a leadership position on corporate social responsibility. They were the first in their sector to launch a dedicated CSR website and commit to being carbon neutral by 2010.

Kevin Dunn, 3i’s Group Company Secretary and General Counsel believes that “It’s in hard times, not easy ones, that strong companies can pull ahead of the competition. By increasing our connectivity to the rest of the world, and by taking a sensible and authentic approach to corporate responsibility, 3i can enhance further its reputation as the private equity firm of choice.” Following on from an 11% reduction in emissions in 2008-09, the company expects to report further reductions in 2009-10, and have taken full responsibility for their remaining carbon footprint by retiring EU Allowances with Carbon Retirement.
