GCP Infra Receives London Stock Exchange’s Green Economy Mark

Date 12/10/2020

  • GCP Infra recognised by London Stock Exchange as contributing to the global green economy.
  • The Green Economy Mark is given to companies and funds that derive more than 50% of revenues from environmental solutions.
  • GCP Infra is the only UK listed fund focused primarily on investments in UK infrastructure debt. At 30 June 2020 the Company’s investments in renewable energy were valued at approximately £650 million, representing 61% of its investment portfolio.

GCP Infra is part of the 2020 cohort of issuers to receive London Stock Exchange’s Green Economy Mark. This classification, first introduced in 2019, was created to highlight companies and investment funds listed on all segments of London Stock Exchange’s Main Market and AIM that are driving the global green economy. To qualify for the Green Economy Mark, companies and funds must generate 50% or more of their total annual revenues from products and services that contribute to the global green economy.

The underlying methodology incorporates the Green Revenues data model developed by FTSE Russell. It provides a detailed taxonomy of environmental goods, products and services, and is designed to recognise both ‘pure-play’ green technology companies, as well as those across all industries that make significant contributions to the transition to a sustainable, low carbon economy.

Ian Reeves CBE, Chairman of GCP Infra, said: “We are pleased to have received London Stock Exchange’s Green Economy Mark, recognising the Company’s contribution to the global green economy. The Green Economy Mark supports GCP Infra in communicating our green credentials to investors and other stakeholders, highlighting our efforts to support the transition to a low or net zero economy.”

Denzil Jenkins, Interim CEO, London Stock Exchange plc said: “We’re delighted to announce the 2020 group of companies and funds that have received the Green Economy Mark. There is growing investor demand for actionable climate and environment-related financial information, with global asset allocations to green and sustainable finance increasing each year. The Green Economy Mark underlines London Stock Exchange’s commitment supporting issuers and investors in the transition to a greener economy.”
