A new label for sustainable infrastructure
In pursuit of the United Nations’ sustainable development goals, Natixis and Switzerland’s Global Infrastructure Basel foundation teamed up to create the SuRe®* sustainable development label. Launched during the COP21 climate conference, the SuRe® label identifies the infrastructure projects that demonstrate social and / or environmental benefit and have been designed responsibly to be more resilient. It enables public entities and industrial sponsors to promote labeled projects for the purpose of attracting more financing. The label also helps institutional investors identify projects with the potential to enter SRI** funds or associated with long-term themes such as energy transition.
* Standard for SUstainable and REsilient Infrastructure
** Socially responsible investment
