Infortar has always prioritised people, resources, and environmental protection. A thorough evaluation of investment objectives requires a rigorous analysis of these components because all three elements affect the results of a company directly.
Whenever we use energy and create waste due to our business activities, we pay particular attention to the energy efficiency and waste management of the structures and buildings under construction as well as other important requirements regarding environmental impact. We are constantly looking for new possibilities for making investment decisions and promoting business activities that are more in harmony with the climate objectives and environmental requirements related to the green transition policies as well as the constantly increasing expectations of the public.
Undoubtedly, Tallink Grupp is an investment with the largest environmental impact. We are always monitoring Tallink Grupp when it develops and implements plans related to corporate social responsibility.
The environmental impact of the investments in the energy sector is mostly caused by the operation and maintenance of the distribution network, filling stations, and other infrastructure belonging to Eesti Gaas and supplying fuel for transport (liquefied natural gas (LNG) and compressed natural gas (CNG)). Infortar has invested significant amounts in renewable energy with a climate-neutral impact on the environment. The largest environmental impact of the investment properties of Infortar is the CO2 footprint caused by the heat and power consumed in our buildings.
Although the final ESG analysis of Infortar will be completed in the coming months, we have long been concentrating on the social and regional development, innovation, sustainability, the green transition, and the circular economy, which is why five objectives from the SDG list of the UN are clearly emerging in our preparatory discussions regarding the current nature and the future of the group: good health and well-being; affordable and clean energy; decent work and economic growth; industry, innovation, and infrastructure; and responsible consumption and production.
