London, January 22th, 2021 – We are publishing this second edition of the NextEnergy Capital Group’s SDG Report in the midst of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which has enveloped the globe and has reinforced the criticality of the UN SDGs to the future health of the planet and its people.
Our commitment to our Mission of generating a more sustainable future is unwavering, and the UN SDGs remain core to our Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) approach and operational practices. This, coupled with evolving our framework for managing, measuring, and reporting our contribution to the UN SDGs, is central to guiding our sustainable investment strategy and contributing to a better future.
This report provides a non-exhaustive update on the work we are undertaking, and the progress we have made, at a corporate level, within the funds we manage and on NextEnergy Foundation. We will continue to provide periodic updates on these and other metrics, and we look forward to engaging with you on our framework in the months and years ahead.
