Actis sets portfolio-wide 2050 Net Zero target

Actis, a global investor in sustainable infrastructure, has committed to align its portfolio to Net Zero by 2050.

Actis will continue to invest in critical infrastructure assets which catalyse systemic change and help the world to align to a Net Zero pathway. In order to identify these assets and aid its investment decision-making process, Actis has developed a Transition Tool, which is already successfully used across every Actis investment. The Tool identifies Net Zero aligned “Green” asset investment opportunities as well as “Smart Olive” assets that have a clear path to decarbonisation and which will be essential for securing a just energy transition.
Further exemplifying its ambition in this area, Actis has also become a signatory to the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative, which supports the goal of Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 or sooner. Actis has established its portfolio carbon footprint for 2021 and will continue to measure the Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions for all its investments. It has also measured and offset its direct emissions since 2019.
