  31. 31. Types of ESG data that CIP works with 34 ▪ Environmental permits: - Which permits - Conditions - Breaches ▪ Environmental incidents e.g. oil spills ▪ Involvement of environmental authorities ▪ Emissions to air, soil, water e.g. NOx, Sox for biomass ▪ Property damage e.g. damage to vehicles, fencing ▪ Renewable energy generated and CO2 emissions avoided ▪ Track record of joint venture partners ▪ Any litigation, arbitration or legal disputes affecting the an investee company ▪ Any regulatory involvement by authorities ▪ Health and safety data e.g lost time injuries ▪ Number of employees and manhours worked ▪ Involvement of occupational H&S authorities ▪ Material interactions with local communities ▪ Households powered with renewable energy Social data (selected examples) Governance data (selected examples)Environmental data (selected examples)
  32. 32. CIP needs ESG data throughout the investment process - ESG data can help CIP to achieve its objective of creating long-term, sustainable value for investors 35 Notes: 1) Each project will vary significantly and certain pieces of ESG data may or may not be relevant for particular projects . Key ESG data1 CIP’s primary role Investment opportunity screening / selection Project development and due diligence Asset management during construction Asset management during operations InvestmentCommittee‘go/nogo’ InvestmentCommitteeapproval INVESTMENT DIVESTMENT Monitoring and enforcing ESG standards ▪ Integrity track-record of potential investee company (G) ▪ Presence and conditions of environmental permits (E) ▪ Scope of obligations on suppliers to manage and report on HSE issues (both E and S) ▪ Findings of environmental and other studies (E) ▪ Relationship between community and project (S) ▪ Health and safety data (S) ▪ Environmental monitoring and incidents (E) ▪ Involvement of authorities (can be E, S or G) ▪ Material interactions with local communities (S) ▪ Ad hoc incidents regarding actions of suppliers (e.g. a breach of permit, an allegation of illegal activity) (can be E, S or G) CIP’s investment process Actively driving the ESG agenda
  33. 33. Case example: Veja Mate Offshore Wind Farm - Using ESG data to improve performance and create sustainable value 36 Source: CIP analysis Installation of ‘double bubble curtains’ to mitigate noise during construction ▪ Operational 402MW offshore wind farm located in the German North Sea ▪ Very large monopile foundations were used during construction → potential noise issues ▪ Advanced noise monitoring measures revealed a need to lower noise emissions to comply with regulatory caps ▪ A key supplier was engaged to install “double bubble curtains” on top of other mitigation measures ▪ CIP closely involved through Asset Management contact with the project company and representation on project Steering Committee and Board ▪ German maritime agencies were informed on a daily basis about noise reduction efforts → foundations ultimately installed within regulatory limits Turbine foundation 20 permanent jobs Reductions of ~800,000t p.a. Green power for eq. ~500,000 homes CO2
  34. 34. CIP also chooses to report ESG data its investors - In 2018, CIP produced its first annual ESG Report for investors 37
  35. 35. ESG Initiatives at CIP - CIP is developing ESG dashboards, which can easily provide fund, asset, geographical and other overviews 38 ILLUSTRATIVE
  36. 36. Becoming a member of GRESB - CIP became a member of GRESB in mid-2019, primarily to learn and connect with industry 39 ▪ Understand areas presenting portfolio ESG risk ▪ Detect opportunities for ESG improvement ▪ Not focused on a particular score – more on themes that emerge Understand risks and opportunities Driver for joining Comment ▪ Improve investor engagement and discussion about ESG topics ▪ Relationship building with project parties, as it can share knowledge from other projects Assist engagement with investors and projects ▪ Understand what other infra fund managers are doing ▪ See trends in other respondents’ answers Identify industry best practices 4 51 2 ▪ CIP reports as a non-member 2018 ▪ CIP becomes a member and reports for funds and 3 assets 2019 ▪ CIP increases the number of assets and the quality of reporting 2020 ▪ CIP continues to increase reporting volume and quality 2021+
  37. 37. Reporting to GRESB – CIP experiences and perspectives 40 ▪ The themes that sit below the score are what helps build a more mature ESG framework It is not just about the ‘score’ Theme Comment ▪ Not easy to compare infrastructure assets across countries, technologies and asset classes – ok if a particular data point might not ‘fit’ a particular asset – ‘Private companies’ disclosures on sustainability-related data are rarely standardized…[a]s a result, data on sustainability in private equity investments remains scattered’ – EU Technical Expert Group on Sustainable Finance, ‘Technical Report on EU taxonomy’, June 2019 One size ESG reporting might not ‘fit all’ ▪ CIP will primarily use GRESB as an internal tool to measure ‘itself against itself’ Focus on trying to improve year-on- year ▪ Different companies have different resources and different abilities to report on ESG ▪ All of us want to see ESG reporting grow so it is far better to be inclusive, collaborative and to promote disclosure – no matter how much of a ‘beginner’ or ‘expert’ your company is Reporting is step in the right direction
