As one of the first investment managers globally to sign the UN-backed Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI), AMP Capital has had the privilege of a front-row seat to observe the evolving and rapidly expanding sustainable investment landscape, having started well before it became such a relevant topic in the marketplace.
Our global listed infrastructure team takes a long-term approach when investing in utilities, transportation, energy and communication infrastructure companies. We invest in companies which provide clean water and electricity, allow for mobility of people and goods, connect people across the world and participate in the energy transition. In doing so, we are a shareholder with a voice, voting on companies’ policies and engaging with management, regulators, legislators about the way companies are run and industries’ issues are dealt with.
As an investment management team, we invest sustainably because it is the responsible thing to do as stewards of our clients’ money but also because we believe it delivers better risk-adjusted returns. We also believe that investing in appropriate infrastructure will be key if the world is going to meet the ambitious agenda set out in the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and the Paris Climate Agreement.
