12.3. Additional information. [Optional]

The approach to determine ESG materiality, targets and monitoring processes differ greatly and is very much tailored to the sector, geography and materiality of ESG issues inherent in each investment. ESG targets where relevant are typically set and monitored by the management team and Board of the investee company. Consistent with our active asset management approach, we ensure high participation, transparency and influence with Board and management.

INF 13. Proportion of portfolio companies with ESG/sustainability policy

13.1. Indicate whether you track the proportion of your infrastructure investees that have an ESG/sustainability-related policy (or similar guidelines).

13.3. Describe how your organisation, and/or your operators, contribute to the infrastructure investees’ management of ESG issues. [Optional]

A number of our investee companies have an existing ESG / Sustainability related policy in place, and we continue to take steps to institute policies in the remaining investee companies. We believe all investee companies should have relevant policies, processes and accountabilities in place that appropriately address ESG risks and opportunities that are material to the operations of the investment.

A majority of our infrastructure assets participate in the annual GRESB Infrastructure Asset Assessments with support from the executive management and respective leaders to review and improve their ESG practices and performances.
