We believe that long term profitability is aligned with responsible stewardship.
Environment, health and safety, corporate governance, and community impact are of paramount importance to us.
We work closely with our local management teams to prepare and adopt appropriate plans for each of our platforms. Through pre-investment screening and due diligence, we identify ESG risks and opportunities. We strive to actively monitor and mitigate risks in our portfolio.
In 2016, we joined GRESB, an infrastructure reporting framework widely recognised as the global benchmark for ESG assessment of real asset portfolios.
In both the 2017 and 2018 GRESB assessment, our funds took the top two places among renewable energy funds in Europe. This consistent top performance is an achievement we are proud of and is testament to our efforts to constantly improve the ESG performance of our investments.
