Our fund raising documents explicitly note our commitment to responsible investing. In the Private Placement Memoranda ("PPM") for the European Diversified Infrastructure Fund III (EDIF III) and the Global Diversified Infrastructure Fund, (GDIF) our approach and commitment to ESG is highlighted on the very first page and then further explained in various sections of the document. For example, the documents include comments such as:
“The Fund aims to achieve attractive, sustainable, risk-adjusted returns over the Long-Term through the combination of proactive asset management focussed on long-term value creation through ongoing incremental improvement within an evolving and recognised market leading ESG framework…” (GDIF)
“The Infrastructure Team aims to achieve superior, sustainable, risk-adjusted returns over the long term through the combination of: …. Proactive asset management focussed on long-term value creation through continuous incremental improvement within an evolving and comprehensive ESG framework; …….” (EDIF)
The fund raising documents have a dedicated section outlining our Integrated Approach to Responsible Investment. In this section we further espouse our commitment to responsible investment and approach to managing ESG matters in pre and post investment phases of the investment lifecycle.
The documents also includes note specific ESG risks and opportunities in the outline of overall key risks for investing in the relevant fund. These include environmental risks, climate change, political, regulatory and social risks etc.
