Man-made climate change and the need for rapid and socially equitable decarbonization presents a generational challenge. We believe this presents an unprecedented opportunity for investment in technology and infrastructure which will support a complete overhaul of one of the most important sectors in the world.
We believe a successful global energy transition will require trillions of dollars of capital in key areas:
- The responsible ownership and transformation of carbon-intensive energy infrastructure.
- The rollout of renewable energy generation and storage infrastructure at scale.
- The establishment of green hydrogen and biofuels at industrial scale to support those parts of the economy that cannot be electrified.
- The repurposing of existing energy infrastructure to support newer, cleaner technologies.
As a global investor in essential infrastructure, we own and operate assets in the industries that are central to both solving this complex challenge and creating the groundbreaking solutions that will be required to facilitate a carbon neutral future.
We recognize our important role and responsibility in the transition and are fully engaged in this mission on behalf of all our stakeholders.
Our Commitment to Managing GHG Emissions
Stonepeak has made commitments towards a goal of Net Zero 2050 (reducing carbon output consistent with limiting global warming to no more than 1.5°C by 2050) – as signatories to both the Task Force on Climate-Related Disclosures (TCFD) and the Net Zero Asset Managers Initiative (NZAM).
We have established measurable and reportable plans to achieve our carbon reduction commitments and implementation is well underway, including:
Our TCFD report for the calendar year 2021 provides an update on how Stonepeak is managing carbon and climate-related risks and opportunities across our business and investment activities.
