Alinda undertakes its own Annual ESG Compliance Audit and Review Process for its portfolio companies
As part of its ongoing portfolio company management process, Alinda conducts annually a review of the portfolio companies’ governance and management documentation and procedures with emphasis on:
Environmental, Health & Safety
Social Responsibility & Corporate Governance
Responsible Contractor and Employee Profile Information
In addition to this formal annual review and audit, we have made these topics standard Board meeting agenda items and include in monthly and quarterly KPI reporting (as relevant), covering the respective companies’ performance in these key areas.
This process has resulted in improved performance, clear ownership of these issues by management and has made the companies better aware of their performance and responsibilities.
In addition, Alinda participates annually in the GRESB Infrastructure Assessment, both at the fund and asset levels. GRESB provides systematic assessment, objective scoring, and peer benchmarking for environmental, social, and governance (ESG) performance of infrastructure companies and funds. Alinda was a founding member of the GRESB Infrastructure Assessment. Alinda’s Tricia Burnell, Director and Head of ESG, serves as Deputy Chair GRESB Infrastructure Benchmark Committee.
