Contributing to the sustainable development of a town, region or country requires the integration of social and environmental standards in every public investment project.
ESG criteria as an investment methodology.
We believe that ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) assessment should be more than a mere check-box in our analysis. Instead, this lies at the heart of every project we analyze, as we strive to serve and build sustainable communities on the long run. Our responsible investment process is underpinned by two fundamental documents: the sustainable development charter and the approach for a responsible ESG management.
Combining technical expertise with active asset management.
Developing and managing new infrastructure projects (“greenfield”) is a complex undertaking, which requires a multi-disciplinary team able to bring an integrated approach : A project is dreamt at inception, takes shape at the design phase, becomes real during construction, and operates through the concession period that can be upwards of 30, 40 even 50 years.
What differentiates us from other investment funds is our unique blend of financial, engineering and management background, whose technical expertise and patient philosophy ensures that only the best, most impactful projects come to life.
The 2030 Agenda of the United Nations is a universal program for sustainable development. It aims to transform our world by eradicating poverty and inequality while ensuring its ecological and solidarity transition by 2030. To this end, the UN has targeted seventeen objectives that address the following general issues: eradicating poverty in all its forms and in all countries, protecting the planet and ensuring prosperity for all.
Our UN SDG-based impact methodology provides measurable results that complement our ESG sustainability methodology. Traceable goals and results and clear lifelong relationships are the only credible way to demonstrate that we are making a difference and moving things forward.
These sustainable development goals are inherent to Meridiam's philosophy. From the conception to the development and maintenance of our projects, we adopt an inclusive and sustainable perspective that should serve to generate real progress for the future generations.
