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.
