ESG and technology in infrastructure and energy are the primary focus of this week’s Infra Dig podcast as the focus turns to Quinbrook Infrastructure Partners – winner of the tech trophy in last year’s inaugural IJGlobal ESG Awards.
Angus Leslie Melville – editorial director of IJGlobal, Infrastructure Journal – talks to Anne Foster, global head of ESG and senior director of investments at Quinbrook about the deployment of technology across their platforms and how it improves the fund manager’s standing.
Without so much as a flicker of shame, IJGlobal bangs the drum for the second time to clarion the ESG Awards 2022 (submissions portal closes 17 August) as Anne is given a platform to run through the reasons her firm won the award last year.
Anne, of course, is a well-known figure in ESG circles and last year won the IJGlobal ESG Outstanding Contribution Award having greatly impressed the independent panel of judges.
In a far-ranging podcast – running time around 45 minutes – Anne takes the listener through how Quinbrook has deployed a range of technologies from blockchain through to artificial intelligence in a bid to improve the fund manager’s ESG credentials and achieve efficiencies.
