Together with our partners, we aim to deliver sustainable infrastructure that benefits local communities.
These six pillars have fed into how we assess our current assets’ existing approach to managing ESG risks and opportunities, as well as into our positive and negative screening of investment opportunities.
Embedding ESG into the investment process
We recognise our responsibllity to ensure that our investments have a positive impact. For us, that means investing in and actively managing infrastructure that helps meet public needs, fosters sustainable growth and improves the lives of communities. We have developed positive criteria to increase transparency within our deal teams on the type of assets and investments that should benefit from ESG tailwinds. We also developed negative screening criteria that determine material sustainability impacts and how to mitigate them. We would avoid investing in assets that are environmentally/socially harmful where there is no mitigation possible.
