  • The sectors that dominate the European infrastructure debt market are energy (23%), telecoms (23%), renewables energies (21%) and transport (16%).[1]
  • In Europe, reaching the 2050 net zero target will require infrastructure spending of up to EUR 14 trillion..[2]

Karen Azoulay, Head of Infrastructure Debt, BNPP AM

“Infrastructure debt has many attractive characteristics for long-term investors and is set to continue to grow, in particular to meet the increased financing needs in booming sectors such as digitalisation and the energy transition.  It is also an asset class where we place sustainability at the heart of our approach: our objective is to assess the ESG[3] performance and the climate impact of our investments and to select only the best performing projects."
