Proximo Intelligence in collaboration with ING hosted a live webinar on Sustainable Finance for Digital Infrastructure on 15th November 2023. View the key takeaways and register to watch the replay here.

Digital infrastructure has enormous potential to contribute to positive environmental and social outcomes in developed and developing markets. It has also been the beneficiary of heightened interest on the part of both debt and equity providers.

But incorporating sustainable concepts and language in financing digital infrastructure - particularly data centres - is an evolving practice. Investors want to ensure that developers and buyers have adequately incorporated sustainability into their engineering, business and financing processes. 

Power and water needs can create concerns for investors, but also opportunities for additional infrastructure development that can attract sustainable capital. Investors may also look to maximise the social impact of their investments.

Proximo, in association with ING, held a webinar on the application of sustainable finance techniques in digital infrastructure on 15th November 2023. Register to watch the replay for free here.
