The Smart City Infrastructure Fund is at the forefront of responsible and sustainable investing

Sustainability

Since its inception, SCIF has not only been supporting cities to improve their sustainability through technological advancement and digitalisation, but has also been focusing on the continuous development of its own responsible investment journey. It has amended its Sustainability Policy ensuring it meets the shifting ESG environment, expanded its sustainable due diligence questionnaire to reflect material issues deemed important by our stakeholders, and through its managing partner recently officially backed UN Global Compact and the Taskforce on Climate Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). In addition, through its managing partner Whitehelm Capital, SCIF is a signatory to the United Nations backed Principles for Responsible Investing (UNPRI) and as a member of GRESB infrastructure submits its annual fund and asset evaluations.

These actions highlight our commitment to driving forward the responsible investment agenda in the data infrastructure sector.
