An international leader in infrastructure
We invest in essential infrastructure, working closely with an international network of industrial partners. We have completed a series of strategically important transactions in Europe and the Americas, becoming the second-largest owner of toll roads in the world, an airport operator serving more than 74m passengers a year, and a renewable energy producer with over 3.5GW of installed capacity.
Effective and inclusive stakeholder engagement
The assets we own are essential to the prosperity of communities and countries. High-quality transport networks, fast and stable telecommunications, reliable and sustainable sources of energy and health services are vital for economic and social development. We build trusting relationships with public and private stakeholders to support sustainable development that brings broad social benefits.
Anticipating the future of infrastructure: digital for climate
We lead our sector in researching the opportunities that digitalization creates in our asset class. The market is facing technological disruption as physical assets are combined with digital services to create new propositions. This changes both the way people access the essential infrastructure around them, and the means of value creation for investors and communities.
Towards a sustainable vision for infrastructure
In line with Ardian’s long-term commitment to invest responsibly and sustainably, our team is constantly exploring how to help improve the impact of infrastructure on the environment and reduce carbon emissions through technological innovation, energy efficiency, increased use of green power, etc. As part of this asset management work stream, we support all our management teams in undertaking measurable carbon reduction initiatives.
