NEW YORK — Siris, a leading private investment firm that invests in and drives value creation in technology and telecommunications businesses, is proud to announce the publication of its inaugural Annual ESG Report. Siris has signed the UN-supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) as an official signatory. This is a global organization of over 4,300 signatories, with more than $121 trillion in AUM, that are committed to incorporating ESG factors into their investment strategies. Siris’ commitment to responsible investment is rooted in the firm’s corporate citizenship values. It aligns with its investors’ growing desire to see their capital be used responsibly and with sensitivity to ESG and diversity equity and inclusion (DE&I). The firm integrates ESG considerations in its investment process and works with its portfolio companies to ensure that they uphold the same standards and values. “We are proud to share the progress made in our ESG journey. Jeffrey Hendren, Co-Founder, Managing Partners and ESG Committee Chair of Siris, stated that he believes our commitment to continually improving our ESG practices will enhance our ability to deliver value to our investors. “I am proud to have worked with Siris to address ESG issues, foster diversity and inclusion at work, and support our communities. Fiona Reynolds, CEO of PRI, said, “We are very happy to welcome Siris as a PRI member.” It is encouraging to see private markets, including private equity, becoming more involved in sustainable investing. We hope more PE firms will follow Siris’ lead and incorporate ESG factors in their investment decisions and ownership. We look forward to working together with the team. Siris is still focused on being socially responsible as an investor, industry leader, and partner with its portfolio companies. It aims to provide the highest level of transparency to its investors through regular reporting and discussion on ESG considerations. Siris plans to make public its ESG policies in accordance to PRI guidelines in 2023 as part of its efforts to align them to internationally recognized frameworks. About Siris
