Building Back Better – DIF Capital Partners achieves A+ UNPRI scores

2020 has been an extraordinary year for all of us. The Covid-19 pandemic has called into question some of the foundations of modern societies, from global supply chains to national health services. But most of all, 2020 has put a spotlight on resilience: the resilience of individuals, of communities, of businesses, of the climate and, in particular of the infrastructure investments of DIF Capital Partners (“DIF”).

Today, DIF is publishing its 2020 ESG Report – Building Back Better. With the publication of the report, DIF shows it has an action-oriented and transparent approach designed to positively engage with all our stakeholders ensuring the resilience of the assets in which it invests and promoting improvement in ESG performance over time.

Furthermore, DIF is pleased to announce that it achieved A+ UNPRI scores for 2020, for both the infrastructure and the strategy & governance modules. This is the result of an integrated approach to ESG across all of DIF’s activities. ESG remains a key strategic priority for DIF, and the awarded UNPRI scores confirm it is fully embedded in DIF’s investment principles, strategy, policies and processes.

DIF welcomes your feedback and is looking forward to continuing this important discussion with its stakeholders – collectively targeting to improve ESG performance and to take to mitigate climate change across the industry.
