ESG Policy

Policy as at:


A sustainable management approach is an imperative for long-term outperformance. HICL’s assets on average have concession lengths that extend over 25 years and as such, short-term profit maximisation does not work.

In building and managing essential public assets for the long term, a stakeholder-focused approach has always been critical to HICL’s success – creating value for our investors and society as a whole.

The application of HICL’s Sustainability Policy (available below) and the management of HICL’s portfolio is undertaken by InfraRed, as Operator, so that HICL:

  • Invests in assets which have a social purpose, which promote social development and quality of life;
  • Creates a positive environmental impact now and for future generations; and
  • Makes an overall beneficial impact on the communities in which our assets are located.
