External benchmarking

We believe that it is important to evidence our commitment to operating sustainably and responsibly and to show how we are performing.

Sustainability indices

We have been a member of the Dow Jones Sustainability Europe Index and of the FTSE4Good Index Series since 2002 and 2011 respectively. In addition, 3i became a member of the Ethibel Sustainability Index (ESI) Excellence Europe in September 2016 and was reconfirmed as a constituent of that index in March 2018.


CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project) is an international, not-for-profit organisation providing a framework which enables businesses to disclose their greenhouse gas emissions and other metrics voluntarily. 3i has been making annual submissions to CDP since 2006.

3i’s score in the 2018 CDP assessment was B.

Since 2011, we have been signatories to the UN Principles for Responsible Investment. We also have a clear and comprehensive Responsible Investment policy which is embedded into our investment and portfolio monitoring processes.
