Our journey to a net zero portfolio by 2050

Infrastructure is responsible for 79 per cent of total greenhouse gas emissions and 88% of all adaptation costs. This calls for a radical change in how decisions on infrastructure are made. Our objective is for 70 per cent of our assets under management to be aligning or aligned to net zero by 2030. Key initiatives include supporting our assets to set targets and decarbonise. John Laing is also an active member of initiative Climat International, the private market climate initiative, where we continue to participate in an industry dialogue to align on infrastructure-specific net zero guidance.

Investing in climate solutions

Infrastructure has a major role to play in the transition towards net zero. Currently, 36 per cent of our portfolio value is in targeted low-carbon investments. These include renewable energy, electric buses, electric rail transport and electrified trackside infrastructure.
