Decades of operationalising sustainability, leading by example and investing towards a net zero world. We build value for a better tomorrow.
We build sustainable value creation into the core operation of the businesses in which we invest. Our approach means that we actively seek opportunities to create long-term, sustainable value. We also apply international Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) standards to all of our investments, regardless of the local regulatory environment.
Sustainability is fully integrated into every investment decision that we make. Our dual approach is to invest in sectors which deliver sustainability solutions; and to drive value at asset level through active ownership. From inception, our dedicated Sustainability team ensures our investments focus on protecting our downside, adding value to produce even greater returns, as well as improving lives and livelihoods. This strengthens our local licence to operate. At Actis, we hold ourselves to our own high standards; we are accountable, collaborative, and transparent.
Our best practice frameworks create long term sustainable value. Step-by-step, month-by-month, investment-by-investment, we define and measure how we transform our portfolio companies and assets into sustainability leaders. We bring our companies together, as peers and practitioners, to catalyse knowledge exchange and codify best practices. We are ambitious in our pursuit of sustainability leadership and we put global standards in place. We don’t compromise; we are persistent even in the face of challenges. De-risking and future proofing our investments.
Navigating climate change is the challenge of our lifetime. We are proud to invest behind the transition to a net zero future. As investors in sustainable infrastructure, we see a huge investment opportunity in addressing global sustainability goals. Our investment process ensures we consider the risk and opportunities arising out of the transition. We are focused on building resilient, future-proofed companies that deliver a transition which is equitable, inclusive and leaves no one behind.
