responsible investment philosophy

Tiger seeks to integrate consideration of Environmental, Social and Governance ("ESG") factors into our investment approach because we believe that these issues can impact the long-term financial performance of our investments and that doing so helps identify potential sources of risk and opportunities to add value. We believe in long-term partnerships and hold ourselves and our portfolio companies accountable to our investors, their beneficiaries and all our stakeholders.

esg integration

Tiger seeks to integrate consideration of ESG factors into all stages of the investment lifecycle, including screening investments, acquisition diligence, Investment Committee approval, value creation, portfolio company monitoring and management, and the disposition of investments.


Tiger seeks to ensure that our business and portfolio companies are environmentally responsible, promote the efficient use of scarce resources, and endeavor to achieve continuous improvements. We seek to integrate consideration of climate change, including physical climate change risks and energy transition risks and opportunities into our investment activities.


The people who work for Tiger and our portfolio companies and live in the surrounding communities are key stakeholders who are critical to our success. We aim to ensure our companies provide a safe, productive workplace with rewarding employment opportunities and contribute to responsible regional economic development.


Tiger promotes honesty, integrity, fairness, and respect. We seek to ensure that our companies have the proper institutional frameworks to support good governance. We seek appropriate disclosures from portfolio companies on ESG matters and endeavor to communicate effectively with our investors and other stakeholders.

ESG In Action

Tiger provides transformational growth capital to middle market infrastructure companies. Our value-add approach targets growth investments across the Digital Infrastructure, Energy Transition and Transportation sectors in North America and Europe, where we believe strong tailwinds are driving demand for new infrastructure. Across our target sectors, but particularly within the Energy Transition sectors, these trends are often linked to decarbonization, energy efficiency and the transition to a low carbon economy. At the same time, creating safe fulfilling jobs held by engaged, productive employees is particularly important to the success of growing infrastructure companies. As a result, many of Tiger’s portfolio companies have potential to deliver positive environmental and social benefits that we believe can help contribute to investment performance. We believe that telling this story effectively is an important part of creating value for our investors. Below are examples of some of the ways in which Tiger's portfolio companies are aligned with common ESG objectives:
