ESG & Responsible Investing
Responsible investing has been an integral part of AIP’s investment strategy and way of working since its foundation in 2012. Born out of PKA’s long-standing commitment to reducing the environmental impact of its investments, AIP has consistently had an active approach to Responsible Investing and Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) matters.
Since AIP’s establishment as an independent investment manager in 2018, we have re-confirmed our commitments to a number of international ESG standards and principles. AIP is today a signatory of the United Nations Principles of Responsible Investment (UN PRI) and UN Global Compact, a proud member of GRESB Infrastructure and a supporter of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). AIP also supports the UN Sustainable Development Goals, where for now we have chosen to focus on seven of these goals.
The inherent societal importance of energy and infrastructure assets makes ESG an imperative component for AIP when investing in and managing such assets. We believe that a strong focus on responsible investing and ESG will create long-term value for our investors. Consequently, we have integrated a range of ESG measures in our investment process, including tools for investment selection, analysis, risk management, and decision making. We actively monitor and work with ESG issues in our portfolio assets and, in close cooperation with the boards, our co-investors and operating partners, we continuously strive to improve ESG performance metrics alongside traditional financial performance. At AIP, we advocate a strong awareness of ESG topics amongst our employees and actively work to ensure that our investment partners mirror these principles.
