Aviva Investors' plans are ambitious: a target of £10 billion in low-carbon infrastructure investment by 2030. But we also know that building a renewable energy infrastructure isn't just about the money. It's about being diligent, consistent, and principled.
So when we considered financing a European infrastructure company in the utilities sector, we took a close look at its roadmap - and recognised that despite a clear plan to decarbonise, other harmful energy sources, such as GHG-generating lignite, were still in place.
We negotiated to impose an ESG specific covenant onto the company, which prohibits it from building any new lignite or coal plants. In addition, we included reporting obligations, so we can keep up to date on its decarbonisation strategy. This means clean, green energy for the future - without compromise.
ESG helps us be better investors, for our clients, and the world around us.
