Macquarie Infrastructure and Real Assets (MIRA) is pursuing emissions reductions and improved energy efficiency across its Australian infrastructure platform.
MIRA, one of the world’s leading alternate asset managers, will target lower carbon emissions at assets in sectors including airports, electricity, port, rail and water.
The emissions reduction standards will focus on identifying global best practice to drive positive change. Global best practice measures include Science Based Targets (SBT), which work to achieve the Paris Agreement commitment to limit global warming to well below two degrees Celsius from pre-industrial levels.
Technologies and measures that can reduce emissions and energy use in infrastructure include:
The CEFC is investing $100 million into MIRA’s Australian infrastructure platform to further support decarbonisation in the infrastructure sector.
