This Guidance Note aims to illustrate how the consideration of ESG factors may inform the forecasting of financials, such as revenues, operating costs and capital expenditure, etc. in the context of assessing an infrastructure asset. It selects twelve ESG factors and identifies their potential risks and opportunities for infrastructure assets as they may emerge throughout an asset’s life cycle (development, construction, operation, and decommissioning). It then sets out to quantify these risks and opportunities for the purpose of developing or adjusting the financial forecasts of such assets.
