This report, State of the Practice: Sustainability Standards for Infrastructure Investors , aims to take stock of the current state of sustainability measurement and standards in the infrastructure investment and development industry, and to review the current set of tools available to infrastructure investors and other participants in the infrastructure value chain to measure environmental, social and governance performance indicators and practices.
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.
This report, which is based on 20+ interviews with investors and other stakeholders, explores the reasons for the slow progress of Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) integration in infrastructure investments by private investors and evaluates the emerging field of publicly available tools that seek to make the sustainability impacts on and from infrastructure projects tangible for investors.
