LONDON, United Kingdom (5 August 2020) – Arcus Infrastructure Partners is pleased to announce that it has been awarded full marks in the 2020 United Nations supported Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI) ESG assessment for the Strategy & Governance and Infrastructure modules.
Arcus was again awarded an “A+” for Strategy & Governance for the third consecutive year and improved to be awarded an “A+” for Infrastructure, from “A” in 2019. In addition to the A+ designation in both categories, Arcus achieved the maximum points score available, ahead of the peer median scores. Increasing our scores and ranking from the previous years and achieving full marks in both relevant categories demonstrates Arcus’ continuous commitment to improving ESG and sustainability management.
Neil Krawitz, Arcus Head of ESG, commented: “Arcus has been a signatory to the PRI since 2017. Arcus believes that investing responsibly protects the best interests of our investors and other stakeholders, and through identifying and managing any ESG issues early in the investment processes and actively managing and reporting them through the investment cycle, we generate long-term sustainable value for all stakeholders. We are proud of our award of full marks by the PRI, recognising our strong ESG performance.”
