Our work across human rights and social issues continues to build on the momentum over the past years that has elevated the ‘S’ of ESG.
In our Cycle 2- General Infrastructure portfolio, we are co-investors alongside Basalt in Nobina, a bus transport and special needs transportation provider in the Nordics. Nobina has a fleet of ~3,700 buses and transports ~317 million passengers per year.
Bus transportation produces less GHG than the equivalent car journeys, in tandem the vehicle fleet is 78% powered by renewable fuel. By 2030, Nobina is targeting 100% renewable fuel and 80% less CO2 emissions per km driven against its 2015 baseline, with further energy efficiency measures in depots and bus heating. Nobina played an important role during the COVID pandemic through providing special needs transportation for the elderly and sick.
