When we set up Tenzing, our aim was to build a team that would bring a fresh approach to private equity. We wanted to think differently and constantly improve, striving to make private equity more curious, kind and successful for all our stakeholders. It’s what powers Tenzing.
We care deeply about making a positive impact on the world outside of private equity, including the environment, the communities we interact with and wider society. That’s why we created The Piton Trust, a registered charity to provide the means for us to donate to charitable causes of our choice.
We’ve committed £500,000 to The Piton Trust to date. We’re going to be contributing via three key areas we care about.
We’re currently working towards becoming a carbon neutral business. It’s the first step we need to take to tackle the climate emergency.
This year, we’re on a mission to become B Corp certified. B Corps are held to the highest standards of social and environmental performance, accountability and transparency, so we’re aiming for the summit!
We believe that curiosity is nurtured in a values-led and inclusive environment where everyone feels like they belong. Our goal is for 50% of our employee base to be to be represented by women and minority groups by 2027 and, specifically, 50% of our Investment Team.
We’re a private equity firm that aims to turn high-growth businesses into global powerhouses. Our focus has always been on the human journey, remaining personal and authentic as we invest. We value curiosity; we never stop learning, and we constantly look to improve our business. This is how we’ve approached our ESG journey.
This year, we published our first Impact Report covering the learnings from our ESG journey so far, the things we’re proud of, and our ambitions for the twelve months ahead.
