We invest in assets that are vital for the effective functioning of our economy and society. Our investments support solutions to some of the continent’s most significant sustainability challenges. Through partnerships, we build, improve and manage essential assets required to heat and power our communities, while laying the foundation for a cleaner future.
Within these focus areas we target investments of up to $25 million, provide investment duration of at least 10 years, have contracted, regulated or steady revenue streams and are physically located in North America. All investments that we make are screened for ESG criteria and must help reduce the environmental impact on our continent and planet.
