Environmental, Social and Governance Values
Investing with Impact
As Canada looks for ways to recover in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are seizing the opportunity to “build back better” by creating more sustainable, resilient and inclusive communities.
Our Core Principles
We believe Northeast has an important role to play in helping communities move to a cleaner, more affordable and more resilient future. We are committed to developing energy infrastructure services that add value to communities, rather than extract value to fund dividend payments, share buybacks and executive bonuses.
Essential infrastructure development should contribute to social well-being, security and prosperity at the community or regional level. We are dedicated to ensuring local voices have a say on important energy projects in their area. When making investments, we consider broader impact measures such as capacity-building and local employment alongside financial returns.
Alignment of Interest
Projects’ success depends on strong alignment between long-term investors, political stakeholders, local communities and First Nations. It also requires trusted relationships, robust support at all levels and appropriate sharing of risk and reward between parties. We invest long-term, stable capital alongside that of our public-sector partners, bringing fresh investment and innovation to a sector that desperately needs new approaches and business models.
