Today’s investors are applying environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors into their investment decision-making. They are integrating these factors into their public equity and fixed income portfolios. But with increased amounts of alternative assets in institutional investors’ portfolios, fund managers are seeking ways to further integrate ESG into asset classes such as real estate and infrastructure. Sustainable infrastructure investment is key to long term risk reduction and potential life cycle savings over the course of these projects. On November 18th we (ii with Purpose Capital and the Carleton Centre for Community Innovation at Carleton Universoity) will bring together a small group of institutional investors, government officials, and key industry representatives in a preliminary discussion on sustainable infrastructure practices and to discuss ways to integrate ESG into infrastructure investment decisions.
