Our Focus

Whilst we recognise the importance of all the SDGs, we believe that our current portfolio can make the biggest direct contribution to the following specific goals:

We have incorporated climate protection measures into our corporate policy to respond to current challenges. We measure and take action to reduce our greenhouse gas emissions to combat climate change and its impacts. We strive to better educate and raise awareness among our employees on climate change mitigation, adaptation, impact reduction and protection.

We advocate equal career opportunities regardless of age, gender, race, or other socio-demographic characteristics and aim at promoting women's participation in leadership positions by actively supporting their developments.

We take investments that promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, create employment opportunities and decent work for all. We continue to expand our infrastructure investment business in private markets to increasingly focus on laying the foundations for a prosperous economy.

We strive for strong corporate governance by implementing and formalizing practices that ensure inclusive corporate development, effective conflict management and accountability at all levels.

We aim at significantly increasing the share of renewable energies in our energy mix while reducing our energy and electricity consumption. We strive to use energy more efficiently, especially within the IT and telecommunications infrastructure.

We want to build resilient infrastructures, green industries, and drive innovation by drawing on the latest scientific and technological research. We empower people with cutting-edge technologies. Technological progress is the foundation of efforts to achieve environmental objectives, such as increased resource and energy efficiency.

We consider quality education to be key to the sustainable development of society, and therefore want to make our contribution through promoting the long-term development of our employees through targeted training measures. We aim at providing people with the skills to develop innovative technologies that shape the future.

We believe that ubiquitous and affordable connectivity is a quintessential element that contributes to reduced digital inequality, by reducing the income gap, improving access to healthcare and education, and providing access to the many services available in a truly digital society.

Our Sustainability Framework

We believe that proactive engagement on ESG matters throughout the investment cycle has not only societal benefits, but ultimately leads to higher valuations and better investment outcomes.

Our Sustainability Framework serves as the cornerstone of our approach to ESG. It sets out the guidelines that enable us to build sustainable businesses and to ensure that a positive contribution is made with every investment. The Sustainable Framework articulates our ESG mission, affirms our adherence to the PRI and our commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
