The United Nations-backed PRI has released a compendium to highlight how its signatories are implementing responsible investment practices in infrastructure investment.
The case studies involve funds such as AustralianSuper, APG Asset Management and PGGM Investments.
The compendium follows a work stream the PRI Secretariat established at the beginning of the year to support the implementation of the PRI in infrastructure.
The PRI’s executive director James Gifford (pictured) says the organisation’s recent survey showed that 18 per cent of their signatories now invest in infrastructure. Of those 44 per cent invest directly in unlisted infrastructure, 62 per cent invest indirectly, and 6 per cent invest in both.
The report begins with an overview of the specific characteristics of infrastructure investments and discusses what responsible investment means in this asset class. From there, a diverse range of case studies by direct and indirect investors in unlisted and listed infrastructure are presented.
