Private markets have an important role to play in sustainable investing, particularly the infrastructure market. Infrastructure investors are finding innovative ways to measure ESG performance for an asset class which spans diverse sectors.
The infrastructure sector benefits from a strong track record of investing into sectors that are positive from an ESG perspective, e.g. energy transition, social infrastructure and digital infrastructure; COVID-19 has accelerated many of these trends.
