LGIM and NTR partner to address climate emergency

RELATED TOPICS​

Asset manager Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM) is partnering with NTR, a renewable energy specialist, to jointly tackle the climate emergency.

The partnership will provide institutional investors in the UK, Europe and Asia access to the EUR1 trillion European energy transition in 2022 by combining LGIM’s 50-year experience in real assets and NTR’s 20-year expertise in renewables.  

Sarah Aitken, Head of Distribution, Legal & General Investment Management (LGIM), says: “This is a wonderful opportunity for us to work with NTR to help investors address their climate-related concerns as the world moves towards net zero.  Legal & General Group has been a cornerstone investor in NTR’s previous European clean energy funds and this partnership is a natural progression to an already successful collaboration.”

Rosheen McGuckian, Chief Executive Officer, NTR, adds: “This is a very significant and exciting step for NTR. By joining forces with LGIM that has such a strong and trusted global reputation, we can accelerate our joint ambition to deploy the capital needed to address the European energy transition targets, which are a centrepiece of European policy to reduce carbon emissions in 2030 by 55 per cent.”

LGIM has a strong expertise in responsible investing and takes its investment stewardship seriously. As well as assessing over 16,000 companies under its ESG scoring methodology, the firm has been recognised for being a top supporter of ‘climate-critical’ shareholder resolutions in 2020 compared to the world’s 12 largest asset managers. In 2020, independent NGO ShareAction ranked LGIM No1 among asset managers for its approach to climate change. The firm was also selected by the UN Principles for Responsible Investment in 2020 as part of its ‘leaders group’ on climate change.

With 50-years of experience in real assets, LGIM’s Real Assets division (LGIM Real Assets) actively invests in and manages assets across commercial, operational, and residential property sectors, as well as infrastructure, real estate, corporate and alternative debt. Taking a long-term view in order to future proof its investments, LGIM Real Assets continues to lead the industry in ESG performance, considering all environmental, social and governance issues at asset level as well as portfolio level.

NTR has over 20 years of experience in investing in and managing clean energy assets, and applies this expertise on behalf of investors who wish to avail of the attractive, reliable cash flows that quality sustainable infrastructure assets can provide. NTR has constructed and operated close to 3GW of wind, solar and energy storage projects across Europe and the US. Since 2015, NTR has acquired and managed renewable energy investments on behalf of third-party institutional investors through its renewable energy funds.
