F2i is a long-term investor with a strong orientation towards responsible and sustainable investment and with a particular focus on ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) aspects. We are also a signatory to the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI).
Our commitment is embodied in our investment policy - we are the leading Italian operator in renewable energy generation - and in our strict demands that our subsidiaries adopt sustainability principles in their daily operations. This approach stems from the belief that meeting ESG criteria helps to create value for investors and the community.
We are convinced that properly managing the risks and opportunities associated with environmental, social and governance issues across the investment cycle will reduce business and financial risk and improve the return on our portfolio. The presence of foundations, sovereign wealth funds, pension funds and insurance companies among our investors has led us since our establishment to align our financial return goals with the principles of responsible investment.
In May 2021 F2i completed the first closing of the Fondo per le infrastrutture sostenibili, with an approach to sustainability based on the identification of companies operating in the infrastructure sector that can combine industrial growth with a continuous improvement of Environmental, Social and Governance parameters (ESG).
