We apply rigorous financial and operational oversight of our investment businesses, including evaluating future growth opportunities. Our treasury functions manage financial risks. Treasury and financial risk management activities are governed by the Treasury and Investment Policy, which is approved by the Board and aligned with our corporate objectives.
Under our strategy we seek to build a balanced portfolio where earnings will be supported by growth in the underlying assets of the businesses and through sustainable investment in high value unregulated opportunities.
Significant investment in the transmission grid is required to accommodate growth in renewable energy. The ISP calls for new transmission, such as interconnectors, to be built and Renewable Energy Zones to be developed, allowing the cheapest electricity to be moved throughout the grid to where it is needed. Looking beyond the immediate pipeline of ISP projects, substantial investment will also be required in distribution networks to make them smarter and more adaptable to new technologies. This is also expected to drive regulated asset base growth in the longer term which contributes to our growth story.
Our focus is on investing in core growth opportunities through disciplined capital allocation and prudent capital management.
