ESG INTEGRATION

ESG factors are considered throughout the investment process, from potential Excluded Activities during the project selection phase, to initial screening and full due diligence during the pre-acquisition phase. ESG clauses are included in key contracts with our counterparties, including EPC and O&M Contractors, and an Action Plan to fill in any gaps between a project, its contractors and the standards which NextEnergy Capital seeks to uphold is agreed during the negotiation phase. Finally, during the ownership phase we ensure that the Action Plan is implemented, and that we report on our ESG performance.
