Energy Infrastructure Partners AG (“EIP”) considers it necessary to assess and manage sustainability factors across each transaction investment cycle. As per Regulation (EU) 2019/2088 on sustainability-related disclosures in the financial services sector (the “SFDR”), sustainability factors are defined as environmental, social and employee matters, respect for human rights, anti-corruption and anti-bribery matters.
Sustainability factors and risks can present both risks and opportunities that need to be first identified, assessed and then monitored, managed and/or capitalized upon, as applicable.
As part of EIP’s commitment towards sustainability and robust ESG management across the funds for which EIP has assumed the portfolio management function, the following disclosures are made. Whilst the SFDR at the entity level do not directly apply to EIP, we consider that the SFDR provides a relevant framework to provide appropriate sustainability-related disclosures, particularly considering EIP’s function as a delegated portfolio manager for EU-domiciled funds.
