Projects must be sustainable, reduce poverty, and provide social and economic benefit while meeting environmental best practice.
We invest in a range of sectors, with off-grid solar; water, sewage and sanitation, social infrastructure and special economic zones being current priority areas.
We will only get involved in a project if we can bring something additional, something that is unique to us that other private or DFl parties can not bring to the project. We will not subsidise other investors’ returns but instead look to invest in projects that are too risky for others alone, but have the potential to be bankable and raise sufficient investment
For us, being additional does not just mean providing scarce capital. Our involvement may enable a project to run a pilot to build investor confidence or pioneer a technology or business model for the first time within a country. Our involvement may also mean that the project adopts international environmental, social or governance standards or implements additional benefit-sharing programmes for local communities. For InfraCo Asia, being additional is fundamental to achieving our purpose and delivering on our Owners’ goals.
