SFDR Disclosures

Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR)

KAIF is aligned with Keppel's sustainability management framework, including incorporating 10 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals as a supporting framework. Since 2018, Keppel has been a participant of the United Nations Global Compact, and we affirm our support of the Global Compact’s 10 principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

KAIF is dedicated to enhancing its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) practices within its investment portfolio. Although KAIF does not consider principal adverse impacts on sustainability factors for its investments, KAIF has a documented Environment, Social and Management System (ESMS) from which it references policies and procedures that KAIF applies to its investments.

Responsible Investment

The ESG strategy for KAIF is predicated on its adherence to KAIF’s proprietary ESMS, which was developed to ensure investments made by KAIF are compliant with the environmental and social (E&S) policies and regulations of the country of investment as well as E&S frameworks of multilateral organisations that are active in the Asia Pacific Region.

KAIF views ESG as an integral part of KAIF’s risk management system and mitigation of such risks helps to create sustainable value and ensure long term outperformance. As a value-add infrastructure fund platform, KAIF team considers various ESG factors not only in its investment decisions, but more importantly work closely with its portfolio companies to implement environmental and social action plans during the investment period and thus setting the standard for ESG best practices in the sector.
