Their participation in EIP’s global coalition furthers both companies’ commitments and strategies to contribute to innovation and reduce their carbon footprint. APG will join EIP’s ESG advisory board and Mainova will play an active role in the coalition.

“APG is committed to the energy transition in several ways and endorses the importance of long term partnerships such as with EIP’s global coalition. APG’s commitment will contribute to the impact growth of companies relevant to the energy transition thereby contributing to fulfilling society’s urgent need and ambition to become carbon neutral. APG is therefore pleased to formally announce its commitment to EIP,” said Nienke Vledder, Senior Portfolio Manager Private Investments.
