Sustainability in motion

Our convictions

We invest in infrastructure assets that have a lifecycle spanning several decades, with the objective of delivering stable and long-term returns. We also invest in and accelerate leading high-growth companies supporting the digitalisation of infrastructure and the economy.

We believe that by developing and implementing a responsible and sustainable investment policy, we contribute to the creation of long-term profitability and value for our investors, public or private sector partners, entrepreneurs, and the communities associated with our projects.

5 priority SDGs across our portfolio

We have decided to align our investments with the United Nations’ SDGs, and we recognise them as the set of common goals allowing asset owners, investors and portfolio companies to outline sustainability priorities and to speak a common language.

We have chosen 5 SDGs representing our sustainability priorities that are used to analyse the impact of our portfolio on a core set of common topics:

A long-term commitment

Since 2011 we have been deploying a sustainable and responsible investment strategy including long-term risk analysis, pertinent criteria definition and monitoring on key KPIs. In 2019, we have taken a step forward by including impact and climate considerations within our sustainability charter, which we are committed to implementing across the investment cycle.

We are convinced that our portfolio companies can take meaningful actions on these core sustainability areas, and we are committed to provide support for future implementation.

Sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services sector (SFDR)

Infravia Capital Partners level: SFDR requires us as an asset management company to make a “comply or explain” decision whether to consider the principal adverse impacts of our investment decisions on sustainability factors. We have decided to comply with that regime. Our policy on the integration of sustainability risks in our investment processes is detailed in our Sustainability Charter, publicly available on our website. Infravia Capital Partners has updated its procedures to align it with its Sustainability Charter and to reflect the integration of sustainability risks in its investment process, as required by SFDR (including its remuneration policy).

Alternative investment funds (AIFs) level*: We encourage and make the promotion of environmental, social and employee matters, governance, respect for human rights, anti-corruption and anti-bribery matters (“Sustainability Factors”) as part of our investment processes. The AIFs that we managed are or will be categorised either (i) as meeting the provisions set out in Article 8 of SFDR for products which promote environmental and social characteristics or (ii) as falling within the scope of Article 6 of SFDR. For further information on SFDR requirements in respect of these AIFs, please refer to the documentation of these AIFs.

* Note: open to subscription. The SFDR categorisation methodology of closed-ended products not anymore open to subscription remains uncertain.
