05.2. Describe your organisation's approach to incorporating ESG issues in infrastructure investment selection.

Triodos Investment Management applies positive ESG factors for all renewable energy projects. A deliberate choice is made on infrastructure projects fitting the overall values of Triodos Bank. Additionally all investments need to meet the investment universe Triodos Research applies.

Within the Energy and Climate department (Infrastructure) a ESG policy is in place. The investment manager analyses the project on its contribution on environmental, social and governance issues based on a due diligence questionnaire and open-end questions. Account managers and investment managers are probed on ESG criteria during the preparation phase and execution phase of the project financing/investment. The Credit and Investment Committee (ICKC) reserves time and dedication to the ESG criteria on which the final investment decision will be made.
