In addition to its policies and procedures, Infracapital supports a number of corporate and social responsibility initiatives reflecting its commitment to sustainable business practices
Climate impact is a strategic priority at Infracapital. We invest in solutions to environmental challenges and drive continual environmental improvements both within our firm and our portfolio companies to meet net-zero targets.
We are committed to being diverse and inclusive both as a business and as an investor. We ensure the essential services we provide seek the betterment of all stakeholders we impact
We strive to achieve strong oversight through sound corporate governance to create leading and resilient business committed to sustainability
Infracapital has identified 10 Core ESG Areas of Focus which focuses our engagement with our portfolio companies on ESG. We believe these 10 Areas are both material and relevant for each portfolio company across the diversified sectors in which we invest.
In 2020, the Responsible Investment Committee established specific commitments across these 10 Focus Areas with specific advancements made on Climate Impact and Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI).
M&G plc is a signatory of United Nations-backed Principles for Responsible Investing (UNPRI), which means it commits to adopt these principles and incorporate sustainability issues into its investment decision making and ownership practices. Infracapital and M&G report annually on adherence to these key investment and asset management principles.
We support the UN Sustainable Development Goals and are proud that our initiatives not only directly address one goal: Build resilient infrastructure, promote sustainable industrialisation and foster innovation, but that our businesses have their own role to play in supporting many others. While we support the UN Sustainable Development Goals , we are not associated with the UN and our funds are not endorsed by them.
The Infrastructure Industry Foundation (IIF) was set up to unite the infrastructure industry in donating funds to worthy charitable causes close to the industry. Through annual events we aim to bring participants across the industry together to socialise and network whilst providing a lasting legacy we can be proud of. We are currently focused on advancing social mobility within the infrastructure industry. For further information, please visit: https://infrafoundation.co.uk/
We see value in collaborating with peers and industry bodies on this subject matter. Infracapital is a signatory to the Initiative Climat International (iCI), a private equity action group on climate change. Supported by the UNPRI, the iCI aims to better understand and manage climate risk and opportunity. As an active member of the Infrastructure working group of the iCI, we look forward to working with our peers in enhancing our understanding within our investment processes and creating standardised approach to monitor and manage climate risk and opportunity.
Infracapital collects ESG data on a quarterly basis that maps to our 10 Core ESG areas of focus and a more comprehensive set of KPIs on an annual basis. We recognise the importance of transparency of ESG related information and the importance of standardisation, and, as such, we now submit to GRESB, the global real assets ESG benchmark framework.
Our Responsible Investment Committee meets on a monthly basis to review adherence to the system and monitor industry best practice. It is chaired by Co-founder Martin Lennon and Alexia Savva is our dedicated Responsible Investment Manager.
