Responsible Investment Policy
Investing responsibly and paying due consideration to environmental, social and governance (ESG) factors is a matter of strategic priority for Dalmore. Dalmore seeks to invest in infrastructure projects that bring positive socio-economic and environmental benefits, through the provision of new and/or refurbished infrastructure assets that support the delivery of essential public services. Infrastructure assets whose primary activity is the extraction of or generation of electricity from fossil fuels are excluded from our investment strategy.
Intrinsic to our commitment to responsible investing and to the promotion of high standards of business ethics and integrity is the belief that ESG factors can have a material impact on the long-term performance of infrastructure assets and support long-term value to our investors. Dalmore also believes that ESG best practices must extend beyond the investments made on behalf of our investors to our behaviour as a firm and as a good corporate citizen.
Dalmore has been a signatory to the UN-backed Principle for Responsible Investment (UNPRI) since November 2013.
