Responsible Investment

Greencoat UK Wind PLC shares the approach to investment with its Investment Manager, Greencoat Capital.  The Company does not have an ESG policy itself, but relies on its Investment Manager to apply appropriate policies to the investments the Company makes.

 

New Investments

The investment committee at Greencoat Capital will incorporate ESG matters into its consideration of investment opportunities. In particular, areas which are investigated are the health & safety and environmental track record, community engagement, as well as financial crime, bribery & corruption.  Generally the investee companies do not have employees and therefore there are no direct labour issues.

 

Current Portfolio

All of the wholly owned investee companies have in place ESG policies, which promote the following:

  • Compliance with applicable laws and regulations;
  • Mitigation of adverse environmental and social impacts; and
  • Board representation on all investee company board, to ensure active management of the wind farm assets. This ensures strong governance, risk management and enforcement of legislative compliance.

 

Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI)

Greencoat Capital LLP, the Company's Investment Manager, is a signatory to the Principles for Responsible Investment (PRI). These principles provide a voluntary framework to help institutional investors incorporate ESG issues into investment analysis, decision-making and ownership practices.
