Natural Systems

Natural Systems is at the core of our sustainable investment approach

It covers a range of services and assets within the water, environmental services and agriculture infrastructure sectors, investing in the need for increasingly efficient and resilient systems required to support the global megatrends of population growth, urbanisation and carbon reduction.

How we invest in natural systems

Significant investment in this sector is required to address water scarcity, replace and upgrade the ageing assets and transition to a sustainable low carbon use of resources through more efficient resource management, treatment, recycling and disposal practices.

Our team applies a thematic approach to investing in this sector, identifying opportunities with durable tailwinds that provide essential services demonstrated by strong long-term performance.

Our investment strategy focuses on markets with established practices as well as potential for growth and innovation, with goal to support further development and improvement of essential infrastructure required by communities and businesses and that is resilient to adverse macro-economic conditions.
