Investing in positively impactful businesses
Sustainability and resiliency are at the heart of our investment strategy. Our portfolio companies decarbonize our energy infrastructure, improve mobility systems and industry, and help our economy adapt to the new challenges of the 21st century, all while striving to deliver long-term value for our investors.
We’re proud to present our inaugural Activate Report, which highlights the impact of our portfolio on climate, as well as environmental, social and governance metrics such as emissions, diversity, equity and inclusion, governance policies, and more.
Together, we are building a better future
As a firm focused on sustainability, we recognize there is no magic bullet for addressing climate change. The Paris Agreement, and achieving a 1.5°C trajectory, will take thousands of companies all meaningfully moving the needle on technology, innovation and scale in their respective sectors. We benefit from, and aim to actively contribute to, what we call a “supercycle”— a 30–50-year shift in the way we produce, deliver, consume and power economic activity worldwide.
