As an investor in infrastructure assets for future generations, we focus on transformational long-term projects that will be standing and delivering positive impact for people and the planet.

Since Meridiam’s inception, our mission has always been to invest in and develop sustainable infrastructure that improves the quality of people’s lives.

This focus remains steadfast, is constantly evolving and improving, and in this sense we have created methodologies that measure our impact towards the UN Sustainable Development Goals in quantifiable terms. They are the factors that define and differentiate Meridiam […].

« Our goal is to be a champion of sustainability. We stand for people and the planet – for today’s world, tomorrow’s progress and the good of future generations. » says Thierry Déau, Founding partner, Chief Executive Officer of Meridiam.
