It all boils down to acquiring knowledge when it comes to becoming a successful investor. Investing has different aspects. It’s a never-ending learning process, and each investor should think about making the proper investment.
The release of the first stewardship report comes at a critical time for asset managers to improve their ESG infrastructure and stewardship initiatives in order to increase collective influence, innovation, and positive impact.
The importance of sustainable investing to the long-term viability of investments cannot be overstated. It is able to fulfil customer needs and deliver value with new skills, mindsets, and methods.
Traditional investing adds value by converting investor funds into investment opportunities with risks that are proportional to projected rewards. To enhance long-term outcomes, sustainable investment combines traditional investing with environmental, social, and governance insights.
Mitigation and Stewardship of ESG Risks
As an investor and manager of low-carbon and renewables infrastructure and enterprises, the fundamental aim is intrinsically oriented toward Net Zero Climate goals and developing real asset investments that achieve long-term carbon reductions.
Partners of ESG Infrastructure focus on sustainability, ethics, and stewardship and extend support well beyond this to the diverse stakeholder base and the various communities in which they operate.
Quinbrook’s objective and investment thesis revolve around reducing emissions and keeping the world average temperature rise below two °C above pre-industrial levels, as well as achieving the 2015 Paris Agreement commitments.
Strive to support the surroundings in which assets are located, and renewable energy has a far larger duty to limit environmental impact.
Among the initiatives are:
- The creation of co-located pollinator habitats and the support of local farmers.
- The recycling and reuse of assets such as batteries and solar panels to reduce their life cycle footprint.
- The elimination of the use of native timber and food sources land for biomass.
- Better design can better understand water stress and minimise water use, such as data centres with recycled water supply.
Job Creation, Community Effect, And Rehabilitation from Covid-19
The COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 caused many people to rethink and modify their habits and priorities in the face of a rising knowledge of the effects of climate change on their lives and businesses.
Job creation, displacement and retraining, community health and well-being, human rights, and modern slavery are important factors in infrastructure’s long-term development.
Quinbrook can create new jobs, support areas that may have experienced job displacement, and drive better environmental justice by investing in newly built assets. Also, able to work with communities that are most vulnerable to the effects of climate change by investing in newly built assets.
Improved Governance, Active and Align Management
Seek to create permanent alignment in the pursuit of good climatic, environmental, social, and governance effects from the investing operations through active governance control, ongoing interaction with investee business management teams, and consistently applied investment procedures.
To think that incorporating ESG principles and commitments into the investment processes and ongoing asset management is critical to long-term wealth generation and protection.
This commitment enables us to foresee, plan for, and prevent certain risks and find chances to build long-term value through enhanced infrastructure and associated companies’ resilience.
Quinbrook can develop more strong governance controls and implement important initiatives such as cybersecurity programs, hiring and diversity, CEO pay alignment, and wider climate and ESG goals thanks to investee board involvement.
