THOMASLLOYD HAS A LONG-STANDING COMMITMENT TO SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE INVESTMENT
Rising urbanisation and demographic changes will spur greater need for physical infrastructure and power generation capacity in most parts of Asia, especially in developing and emerging countries of the region. As countries move up the value chain, demand for reliable and clean sources of energy, transport, logistics and utilities will continue to grow, but numerous recent studies have reported an increasing funding gap. The Asian Development Bank forecasts that Asia needs US$8 trillion in the decade to 2020 to plug its infrastructure deficit.
In the last 12 years, ThomasLloyd has advised and/or invested in numerous companies and projects in the infrastructure sector throughout North America, Europe and Asia with an continued focus on clean technologies and an aggregated transaction volume of US$ 3.0 billion, creating shared value for both investors and communities.
To leverage its successful track record as financial advisor and principal investor in the sector and accelerate the Firm´s social impact ThomasLloyd launched in 2011 its Cleantech Infrastructure Investment Platform. Since its launch ThomasLloyd initiated and realised as Co-developer and “Enabling”- Investor infrastructure projects in the area of power generation and transmission in Asia with total implementation costs in excess of US$ 700 million.
Environmental and social benefits
created by ThomasLloyd Group´s direct investments
The direct impact described above only provides an incomplete picture of the effects of ThomasLloyd infrastructure
projects in South East Asia. When the indirect effects and consequences for society and the environment are considered,
the result is a significantly larger indirect impact.
Our planet – A closed ecosystem
It doesn't matter to the world's climate where carbon emissions are produced or saved. ThomasLloyd infrastructure projects are mostly in emerging economies because, with their rudimentary infrastructures, the potential reductions there are greater than in industrialised nations. So you can do more there to protect the climate for every dollar received.
