ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL AND GOVERNANCE VALUES

Environmental, Social and Governance Values

Investing with Impact

We adhere to environmental, social and governance (ESG) values that build on the concept of “leaving no one behind,” the central, transformative promise of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Our financing and governance strategies align with the United Nations 2030 Agenda and its SDGs, which emphasize a holistic approach to achieving sustainable development for all.

Our Core Principles

Sustainable Development

We believe Northeast has an important role to play in helping communities move to a cleaner, more affordable and more resilient future. We are committed to developing energy infrastructure services that add value to communities, rather than extract value to fund dividend payments, share buybacks and executive bonuses.

Community Focus

Essential infrastructure development should contribute to social well-being, security and prosperity at the community or regional level. We are dedicated to ensuring local voices have a say on important energy projects in their area. When making investments, we consider broader impact measures such as capacity-building and local employment alongside financial returns.

Alignment of Interest

Projects’ success depends on strong alignment between long-term investors, political stakeholders, local communities and First Nations. It also requires trusted relationships, robust support at all levels and appropriate sharing of risk and reward between parties. We invest long-term, stable capital alongside that of our public-sector partners, bringing fresh investment and innovation to a sector that desperately needs new approaches and business models.
