The dedicated NextEnergy Capital ESG team which advises NESF has doubled in size in the last 12 months, to six people, expanding its skillset and expertise. This reflects NESF’s commitment to ensuring a robust Sustainability and ESG approach is maintained at the heart of its work. The ESG team advising NESF consists of a Head of ESG, Vice President, two Associates, and two Analysts, who all have targets in their individual performance goals relating to ESG. These relate, for example, to developing expertise in specific areas to support transaction due diligence processes, and leading strategic projects that extend across NESF’s activities, including responsible sourcing.
NESF benefits extensively from the talented and committed teams of NextEnergy Capital and WiseEnergy. Their employees share a passion for the NESF Mission, and contribute a breadth of specialist skills. In particular, under Giulia Guidi’s leadership, the ESG team at NextEnergy Capital is responsible for leading on the NESF Sustainability and ESG agenda, risk management, reporting and stakeholder engagement.
Overall, the dedicated ESG team has 50 years of combined experience across a range of sustainability and ESG issues relating to the energy sector. Other NESF advisers include a senior Environmental Impact Manager who is dedicated to valuing the natural capital of NESF’s portfolio, and the NextEnergy Capital senior management team, which has extensive strategic and operational experience of engaging with Sustainability and ESG topics across energy and infrastructure projects.
