We believe that everyone should be able to access and benefit from the infrastructure we finance, and that all voices should be heard and equally consulted. We will champion infrastructure solutions that target isolated, rural communities or under-represented groups to help ensure that no-one is left behind as countries develop and adapt to climate change.
We encourage everyone to share their needs, ideas and concerns as solutions are designed, built and operated. We work with our project partners to ensure that women, girls and other under-represented groups have equal access to infrastructure and jobs within our project supply chains, workforce and management teams.
We also embed leading health, safety, environment and social systems into our projects and investments to protect all those working to construct or deliver inclusive infrastructure. Working proactively alongside communities to identify additional initiatives or changes that could be made to improve their health, surrounding environment and wellbeing or to keep them safe when using or living in proximity to the infrastructure we develop.

The HSES Safeguarding Rules are a set of 10 rules designed to ensure safeguarding processes are in place across all of our projects, protecting the fundamental rights and wellbeing of workers and the worker community interface, specifically in regards to incidents of Gender Based Violence and Harassment (GBVH), Modern Slavery and Child Labour arising in our projects and supply chain.
The 12 Life Saving Rules are not intended to address all risks and hazards in the PIDG portfolio; they are meant to draw attention to the activities most likely to lead to a fatality, and the life saving actions over which an individual normally has control. We change lives in PIDG but while doing so we also strive to ‘save lives’ by ensuring that all of our people across all of our portfolio “Go home safely – every time.”
