AIP Management’s ESG Report for 2021 is now published!
With the annual ESG report, AIP management is proud to make public its progress and transparency on ESG matters and initiatives.
During 2021, the EU Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation came in force (SFDR). AIP welcomes the increased transparency and intends to stay in the forefront of ESG reporting. Already in this report we are publishing a full assessment of the alignment with the EU taxonomy for each individual investment.
As a supporter of the Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) AIP is committed to also improve and increase the reporting of climate-related financial information. With this year’s report we have enhanced our analysis and for the first time we disclose asset specific climate risks.
When it comes to investments, AIP issued its first Green Loan – by investing in four Lithuanian onshore wind projects. We were also able to complete an investment into one of the largest offshore wind projects in Scotland.
External recognition is always encouraging, and we are proud that AIP in 2021 for the second year in a row managed to achieve a top ranking in the GRESB Infrastructure Fund Assessment. We see the top ranking as a validation of our approach, and we will maintain and further strengthen our dedication towards responsible investing and ESG.
ESG considerations and responsible investment have been a core part of AIP’s strategy and way of working since the very beginning. We believe that a strong focus on ESG goes hand-in-hand with creating long-term value for our investors. Looking ahead, we remain very positive around the outlook for investing into energy and infrastructure assets in partnerships with responsible investors and operators in existing as well as new technologies. We thereby hope to contribute to the continued journey towards a more sustainable energy economy.
