Responsible investing is part of the ethos of Infracapital and Environmental, Social and Corporate Governance ("ESG") issues are embedded across our investment lifecycle. Consistent with our fiduciary duties to our investors, our ESG policy is intended to protect and enhance the value of our investments in the long term. We thus take into account all factors that influence investment performance, ESG being one of them, given the long-term value that can potentially be achieved through sustainable growth.
As such, ESG is a part of our strategic priorities, both in identifying investment opportunities and in improving the companies in which we invest. Our ESG approach is incorporated across the full life cycle of our Funds and is several-fold; from investment strategy and investment appraisal to Infracapital's active asset management approach and monitoring and oversight. Sustainability is a key consideration at every stage of the investment lifecycle, and ESG issues are considered in detail throughout the acquisition process .Post-acquisition, Infracapital continually monitors and reviews sustainability issues for all portfolio companies. Infracapital expects investee companies to comply with all relevant laws and make appropriate ESG disclosures.
Infracapital operates an ESG Management System ("ESMS") which sets out our ESG procedures across the business.
