B Capital Partners AG is a partner-owned investment house, established in 2003 and Zurich-based. We exclusively focus on core sustainable infrastructure. Since 2010, we have invested and advised capital in excess of EUR 2.6bn across Europe. Our goal is to select superior infrastructure assets for our clients, while adhering to the highest corporate ethic as well as to state-of-the-art ESG standards. We are a signatory to UN PRI as well as to WEPs (Women Empowerment Principles) and a member of GRESB.
In our view, several megatrends affect the global economy and as such, will drive future infrastructure investment opportunities. These are in particular: climate change, technological advancements, and urbanization. Based on our research and taking into account sustainability and other risk-return aspects, we are emphasizing the small- and midsize segment of select sub-sectors of the core infrastructure market. Promising sub-sectors are, among others, in the energy transition space, which we define broadly to include the entire energy value chain from storage, heat and power distribution, energy efficiency to carbon-neutral power generation and related information technology and communication assets.
We have demonstrated our commitment to integrating ESG aspects into the industry’s traditional investment and monitoring processes via several initiatives and publications. Most importantly, we have developed an ESG risk management tool (ESG RM Tool) for direct infrastructure investing together with GRESB .
