Provide a brief description of your organisation’s selection, appointment and monitoring of third-party operators. [Optional]
Partners Group evaluates the operator of target infrastructure assets to understand among others their H&S record and environmental compliance. During ownership, we conduct regular site visits and on-site workshops on ESG issues; we set ESG targets and corresponding ESG projects to achieve the targets. There are also periodic check-ins on the projects and an annual survey to collect data on key ESG KPIs. In 2019, we worked with our Private Infrastructure Asset Management Team to establish a requirement that any new third-party operator contracts must include ESG considerations.
Describe how your third-party operators contribute to the management of ESG issues for your infrastructure investments. [Optional]
