Working towards sustainable development with our partners
The primary objective of our infrastructure investments is to create lasting value, and we undertake to make sustainable investments. To live up to this, we are involved in various organisations in order to work with others to identify measures for sustainable growth and actively support them, and to develop and improve general standards within the finance sector.
With our membership in industry associations and our exchange with think tanks, NGOs and globally recognised initiatives for sustainable investment, we play our part in sustainable development, in particular with regard to social, ethical and environmental aspects.
United Nations Environment Programme Finance Initiative
The United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) is the leading global environmental authority that sets the global environmental agenda, promotes the coherent implementation of the environmental dimension of sustainable development within the United Nations system and serves as an authoritative advocate for the global environment.
PRI – Principles of Responsible Environment
The PRI is the world's leading proponent of responsible investment. It works to understand the investment implications of environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors and to support its international network of investor signatories in integrating these factors into their investment and ownership decisions.
The PRI acts in the long-term interests of its signatories, of the financial markets and economies in which they operate and ultimately of the environment and society as a whole.
The PRI is truly independent. It encourges investors to use responsible investment to enhance returns and better manage risks, but does not operate for its own profit; it engages with global policy makers but is not associated with any government; it is supported by, but not part of, the United Nations.

Since its inception in 2009, the GIIN has supported the development of and raised awareness for the emerging field of impact investing by building a strong network of investors and leaders.
The GIIN is a reflection of the diverse community we serve. Through the leadership of our Investors’ Council, the collective ideas of our members, and the dedication of our staff, our Network drives conversation and actions to advance the impact investing industry.
