Sustainable Infrastructure Investment

We are investing in sustainable infrastructure, helping drive the transition to net zero.

Emerging infrastructure investments

Meeting net-zero targets will require billions of pounds of investment to scale up new emerging infrastructure assets across critical sectors such as Mobility, Energy Transition, Connectivity, Circular Economy and Construction. The opportunity is ripe for progressive companies to shape and grow these emerging sectors, supported by private growth capital. 

The scale of ambitions will require investment in a new wave of emerging infrastructure businesses and adapting the existing ones.

We must repeat the successful growth of renewable energy generation and apply this to other new asset classes. 

New sectors need to scale up.

Meeting net zero targets will require a new breed of asset classes, including long-duration electricity storage, hydrogen, electric vehicle charging, carbon capture, battery recycling and other ways of tapping into renewable resources and recycling finite resources.

Existing sectors need to adapt.

We also need to set new, higher benchmarks for existing sectors. For example, we need to decarbonise our heating, industrial processes and construction industry, dramatically improve the energy efficiency of expanding digital infrastructure and make sure that we improve and scale recycling processes and technologies. 

Society is at an inflection point.

Renewable energy investment has accelerated the UK’s transition away from fossil fuels.

But to achieve the full extent of the UK’s net zero ambitions, investment is needed in a new wave of sustainable infrastructure businesses, not just these established assets.

It’s now time to accelerate the growth of emerging sustainable infrastructure.

Hear more from our Sustainable Infrastructure Investment Director, Lukasz Michalak, on the exciting new wave of infrastructure waiting to be rolled out across the UK.
