Arc: Investing in Renewable Energy

Investment Spotlight
Brookfield Infrastructure’s Australian rail business, Arc Infrastructure, has replaced approximately 32 km of overhead power lines with a solar powered system. This will assist in both reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing the reliability of the electric grid in times of severe weather or bush fires. 

To further lower the impact of this project on the environment, the displaced materials from overhead power lines were melted down and recycled. This project represents one of many examples of how Brookfield encourages its companies to integrate tangible environmentally beneficial initiatives into their growth and maintenance capital programs, where feasible.
