Our ESG priorities

Climate change is the great issue of this century. We invest in infrastructure that helps to create a low-carbon future, meeting the long-term demands of our communities and economies.

Low-carbon future

Energy-transition assets like smart grids and electric vehicle charging networks demand vast investment. We focus on navigating the technological and market risks as new, low-carbon ways of doing business emerge.

The digital grid

We invest in core digital infrastructure such as optical fibre networks, mobile tower networks and data centres. These ensure the equal access to fast internet services that’s necessary for human progress.

Electric switch

Powering transportation, homes and industry with renewable electricity is key to our decarbonised future. We invest in electric transportation networks, and wind and solar farms to generate renewable power.

Delivering Sustainable Value

Our investment strategy centers on the European market, driving the digital and energy transition towards a sustainable, net-zero future. We provide our investors with a diversified portfolio of assets across Europe, creating a significant positive impact on society.

Digital telecoms

Alongside our financial partners OMERS and Allianz, we acquired a 50% stake in XpFibre in March 2019, which services 5.4 million homes in France with critical internet access infrastructure.

Steady expansion

We added another 1.5 million homes to XpFibre’s scope with the December 2020 acquisition of Covage, making XpFibre the number two player in the French internet infrastructure market.

Data4 collocation

In 2018, we completed the acquisition of Data4, which builds, owns and operates carrier- and cloud-neutral data centres, and is the largest independent colocation player in Europe.


Connecting communities

Our telecoms investments and infrastructure strategy are designed to create a stronger, more connected world.

    ESG Disclaimer

    The ESG data used in the investment process are based on ESG methodologies which rely in part on third party data, and in some cases are internally developed. They are subjective and may change over time. Despite several initiatives, the lack of harmonised definitions can make ESG criteria heterogeneous. As such, the different investment strategies that use ESG criteria and ESG reporting are difficult to compare with each other. Strategies that incorporate ESG criteria and those that incorporate sustainable development criteria may use ESG data that appear similar but which should be distinguished because their calculation method may be different.
