Sustainability and Responsible Investment

CIP recognizes the importance of environmental, social and governance (“ESG”) topics on the long-term performance of its funds under management. CIP sees the strong link between ESG and value creation, and as a fiduciary investment manager, is committed to managing ESG impacts in a sustainable and responsible manner. CIP reports directly on ESG topics on a quarterly and annual basis to investors in its funds. 

The investments have positive climate and social impacts

The Funds’ investment strategies, which focus on greenfield and renewable energy projects, create positive impact on the environment and aid high quality job creation across global markets. The projects in the CIP managed funds’ portfolios at 31 December 2019 once operational, are estimated to sustainably power approximately 3.0 million households and save the equivalent of approximately 5.6m tonnes of CO2 each year.

Human Practice Foundation

CIP provides financial support to the Danish charity foundation Human Practice Foundation, which focuses on improving education and developing social entrepreneurships in the poorest areas in the world. The organization’s vision is to allocate and utilize resources and create real, measurable growth and sustainable development for the funds received, and to give children in developing countries the possibility to lift themselves out of poverty.

In March 2018 CIP participated in the inauguration of the Saraswati Sikaicha Secondary School in Taplejung, Nepal – a project where CIP has contributed financially to the construction of the school building and various equipment.
