Sustainable Infrastructure Investment

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

A new wave of sustainable infrastructure is emerging

The UK has already made significant steps towards it’s climate goals – for example, solar and wind assets are now mature sectors. However, this is only a part of the solution in reaching net zero.

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

New sectors need to scale up

Reaching net zero 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.

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.

Our approach

Our team have a combined 70+ years of experience working on infrastructure investments. We are experts in backing asset-intensive platforms in critical emerging sections with truly transformative potential, and scaling them up.

As hands-on managers, we are actively involved in the key operational, commercial and financial aspects of each asset. This is critical for emerging infrastructure which requires more proactive asset management.

We have committed approximately £1 billion into our strategy and continue expanding by working with companies looking for growth capital.
