The earth is what we all have in common. (Wendell Berry, Author and Farmer).

Care for the environment is essential for sustainable development. As an active investor in the region's water industry, Capital Investment Fund Abu Dhabi has seen firsthand the issues caused by environmental degradation and lack of access to clean, affordable environmental services. We have consequently made water and the environment one of the pillars of our corporate social responsibility program.

We are proud to announce that Capital Investment Fund Abu Dhabi formally has joined HRH The Prince of Wales' Terra Carta, which provides a roadmap for businesses to move towards a sustainable future by 2030.

Capital Investment Fund Abu Dhabi is the first firm from the Middle East and Africa to join the charter and to commit to its 10-point action plan for sustainability, inclusive of nature, people, equality, and prosperity. The charter forms a part of Prince Charles' Sustainable Market Initiative (SMI) which connects the public, private, and philanthropic sectors to lead and accelerate the global transition to a sustainable future.

Capital Investment Fund Abu Dhabi has been working towards more tangible ESG goals, implementing systems and processes across operations and our large portfolio of investments. We have recently moved to formalising our ESG commitments by becoming a signatory to both the Terra Carta and the United Nations Principles for Responsible Investing ("UNPRI") initiatives.
