The diversity and complexity of debt markets bring unique challenges when incorporating ESG factors in investment decisions, however opportunities for responsible investors abound.
The materiality of ESG factors must be evaluated on an asset-by-asset basis, given the diversity of infrastructure. Environment is particularly relevant as infrastructure projects have such a direct impact on biodiversity, resource use and the local environment.
Using an ESG lens to identify risks and value creation opportunities is becoming more mainstream in private equity. The use of impact methodologies will also increase, answering stakeholders’ demands for evidence of the real-world impacts of ESG programmes.
