CIIX to pilot in three communities in Ontario

Following our successful symposium in November, the Canadian Impact Infrastructure Exchange (CIIX) will launch a pilot program in three Ontario communities in 2015 that will analyze three real world water infrastructure projects (water supply/storm water management/wastewater) in Ontario and will perform a comprehensive sustainability analysis of the proposed infrastructure plan (or design, depending on project stage) ensuring high ESG standards.  It will bundle the three small projects into an investment ready opportunity and engage responsible investors in this opportunity. It will test this approach to creating high ESG standards in an infrastructure portfolio for responsible investors. To read more about this initiative, and about CIIX in general, please visit the CIIX page.
