Minneapolis, MN – North Sky’s Adam Bernstein, Managing Director, and Andrew Harris, Principal, spoke with IREI’s Institutional Investing in Infrastructure about the progress and advancement of ESG significance and reporting in the infrastructure space over the past 10 years.
In the recently published i3 article, ESG: What’s in Your Infrastructure Wallet?, Adam points out that ESG factors have gone from being an ancillary benefit to a pre-requisite for consideration. “Ten years ago, it would be a nice-to-have, and now it’s more of an upfront requirement,” he added.
The utilization of ESG factors in infrastructure investing is still evolving. “We are seeing a good and healthy dialogue between institutional investors, investment managers and the industry over what is material, what should be measured and what should be factored as risks,” Andrew told i3. “And it will take time for that dialogue to play out.”
