IPI is committed to investing responsibly and believes environmental, social, and governance (”ESG”) factors are essential criteria for managing risk and optimizing value across its global portfolio. IPI seeks to focus on ESG issues that it believes have the most significant impact on business, environmental, and social performance.
IPI Partners is passionate about digital infrastructure that drives positive environmental and social impact.
IPI seeks to integrate sustainability factors into every stage of its investment decision making process. Upon closing of an investment, IPI strives to engage frequently with portfolio companies on ESG data collections, monitoring, and reporting on key sustainability risks, opportunities, and outcomes.
IPI is a signatory of UNPRI and a supporter of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures. IPI believes these organizations provide sound frameworks for increasing transparency on climate, environmental, and social-related risks related to opportunities within financial markets.
We strive to be transparent in our approach to ESG management by regularly reporting to the Firm’s investors, employees, and key stakeholders. We are also committed to supporting the ESG management and reporting efforts of portfolio companies and joint venture partners.
We believe the companies we work with combat climate change by employing advanced methods to source renewable energy, manage consumption, and conserve resources.
