At MQA, we believe that many environmental, social and economic benefits arise from the responsible private sector development and operation of infrastructure. We are also aware that with these benefits lies the potential for risks, including environmental and social responsibility (ESR) risks which can have commercial, reputational and regulatory impacts on our business and affect the communities in which our portfolio assets operate.
We are committed to ensuring environmental and social risks are identified, assessed and managed responsibly at both the MQA corporate level and at our portfolio companies in order to generate the best long-term outcomes for our stakeholders.
Our approach to sustainability
We structure our ESR management approach around focus areas that are considered to have a material impact on our portfolio.
Our approach to each focus area is provided in more detail in our 2016 Environmental and Social Responsibility Management report.
