Overview

INF 01. Description of approach to RI

01.1. Provide a brief overview of your organisation’s approach to responsible investment in infrastructure where you have equity stakes.

AMP Capital recognises that ESG issues can impact the long-term performance of our infrastructure investment portfolios and considers them as a core component of our mainstream investment process and throughout the lifecycle of an asset.

As a pioneer in infrastructure investing and an early (April 2007) signatory to the PRI, the AMP Capital Global Infrastructure Team has a sophisticated understanding of ESG-related risks and opportunities across its diverse portfolios. ESG issues are a core component of our mainstream investment process, with explicit ESG protocols at each stage: identification of new opportunities, origination and due diligence, and post-acquisition management of the investment. These rigorous protocols and controls ensure high quality consideration of ESG issues, regardless of the sector, fund, investment style or geography. They are reinforced by AMP Capital's integrated corporate responsibility framework that commits our organisation to making responsible investment decisions on behalf of our investors.

For our equity investments with an internal management team, influence over investee companies is typically exercised through board representation, supported by regular access to the CEO, CFO, facilities managers, and other senior management. Our interactions are at regular 'touch-points' through the investment and annual cycles, providing continuous opportunities to ensure that ESG considerations are incorporated in investee decisions. For investments that rely on third party operators, AMP Capital Asset Managers remain responsible for monitoring and driving improved ESG performance.

02.3. Additional information. [Optional]

At AMP Capital, we recognise that ESG issues can impact the long-term performance of our infrastructure investment portfolios and consider them as a core component of our mainstream investment process. ESG issues are considered in the early stage of investment origination and throughout the due diligence and acquisition phase. Post-acquisition, we continue to monitor and manage specific ESG issues to ensure strong risk management and engagement with the relevant stakeholders.

As a pioneer in the infrastructure asset class and an early signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), the AMP Capital Global Infrastructure Team has a sophisticated understanding of ESG-related risks and opportunities across a diverse portfolio of infrastructure sectors.

We consider ESG issues as a core component of our mainstream investment process as demonstrated by explicit ESG protocols across the full scope of our investment process; from identification of new opportunities, throughout origination and due diligence and post-acquisition management of the investment.

Rigorous investment process controls are in place to ensure high quality consideration of ESG issues, regardless of sector, fund, investment style or geography. These are reinforced by AMP Capital's integrated corporate responsibility framework that commits our organisation to making responsible investment decisions on behalf of our investors.
