It’s been our driving force since our foundation in 2005. We believe infrastructure that delivers the highest ethical and sustainability standards brings more value to communities and economies, and to our partner investors.
Meridiam takes a selective approach to infrastructure investment. Our strategy excludes and restricts investments that do harm to the environment or weaken the communities they serve. Consequently, we have never invested in the extraction, processing, or transportation of fossil fuels, and never will. Nor will we invest in infrastructure using coal as an energy source.
Environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria are central to all decision-making. It’s definitely not a box-ticking exercise. Rather, it shapes how we analyse and approach each project.
Our in-house ESG specialists help define Meridiam’s strategy and provide the tools and expertise to maximise and measure the impact of our work. Meridiam is aligned, accountable and driven to meet the highest ESG standards.
Our focus on sustainability and making a positive impact for people and the planet runs through everything we do – from the development of our assets to their management over the very long term.
For impact to be effectively delivered, it must be measured. Following our adoption of the SDGs in our investment processes and targets, we created a unique methodology for measuring and reporting impact.
