Responsible investments are sustainable

Our sustainable investment policy

Infranode has a responsible and sustainable approach to invest in infrastructure assets and projects that promote the sustainable and efficient functioning of the environment, economies, communities and people they serve. This means infrastructure that has low or positive carbon dioxide impact, is climate and weather resistant, provides complementarity and is economically sustainable and inclusive.

Due to the long-term character of the assets and projects invested in by Infranode, sustainability is central in every step of the investment process—from careful due diligence when assessing investment opportunities, to ongoing work on sustainability issues in our completed investments. Infranode has developed an internal ESG tool through which the ESG policy is implemented and supervised.

Sustainability is part of our core strategy

ESG in the investment phase

Full review followed by integration of identified ESG factors into the general investment analysis and improvements in the long-term business plan.

ESG under our ownership

High commitment where we as shareholders on the board, both in majority and minority positions, take responsibility to implement the ESG factors in our business plan in cooperation with other owners and senior executives—so that we continuously improve the sustainability of the underlying investment.

Collaboration within ESG

Infranode is a member of several organizations that work together for sustainable investments, such as PRI, SWESIF and LTIIIA.

Active in several leading organizations working for sustainable investments

ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance)

PRI is the world's leading advocate for responsible investments. The organization is working to analyze how environmental and social factors together with governance (ESG) impact investments while supporting its international network of investors to implement these factors in their investment and ownership decisions. PRI acts for its members' long-term interests, the financial markets and economies where members are active, the environment, and for society at large. PRI is completely independent and encourages investors to use responsible investments to improve returns and manage risks better. PRI is a nonprofit organization that is not associated with any government agencies, but works long-term toward global decision makers to drive an agenda of responsible investments. PRI is supported by, without being part of, the UN.

Swesif is an independent network forum for organizations working for or with sustainable investments in Sweden. The long-term goal is to increase knowledge of sustainable investments, to be a network and meeting place for knowledge and experience, contribute to relevant statistics on sustainable investments in Sweden and contribute to the public debate through active participation.

"Long Term Infrastructure Investors Association" was founded in 2014 by investors for investors, and works with a wide range of stakeholders—including infrastructure investors, decision makers and academics—to support long-term and responsible allocation of private capital to public infrastructure around the world. The most central activities are engagement with decision makers and the public to drive long-term investment issues—in research and innovation in favor of infrastructure investors and education on long-term infrastructure investments. LTIIA is a non-profit international organization. Most of its members are institutional investors and fund managers in charge of long-term and open infrastructure investment mandates.

Infranode’s remuneration policy – integration of sustainability risks

The Board of Infranode (“the Manager”) has adopted a Remuneration policy to ensure that the Manager has a remuneration system that (i) complies with the Manager’s and the Funds’ strategies and objectives, (ii) does not encourage excessive risk taking, (iii) aligns the interests of the Funds and the Investors with those of the Manager’s staff, and (iv) maintains a sound financial situation of the Manager. The policy applies in relation to the Manager’s business as a whole.

According to the Remuneration Policy, employees are entitled to fixed remuneration. In addition, some employees will be entitled to variable Remuneration. All variable Remuneration shall be determined on the basis of performance, which means both (i) the individual performance by the staff member and (ii) the Manager’s overall performance. Both financial and non-financial criteria shall be taken into account in the assessment of the staff member’s performance. Non-financial criteria include inter alia the adherence to the ESG policy with regard to the integration of sustainability risks and sustainability is integrated in performance indicators and targets, and subject to performance reviews of Infranode employees. For heads of departments,sustainability is part of their performance KPIs; for employees, ESG is part of their performance review.

In order to achieve a long-term perspective and stability in the Manager’s operations, the performance assessment that will form the basis for variable remuneration will be based on performance during a longer period (at least one year). This period constitutes the staff member’s accrual period.
