GRI Global Committee: ESG & Responsible Infrastructure
THE CONCEPT  |  
GLOBAL 
COMMITTEES

GRI Club's Global Committees set the professional standard for peer-to-peer knowledge sharing in order to identify new trends, capitalise on growth opportunities and aid deal flow discovery worldwide.

The GRI Hydrogen Committee is composed purely by members from the infrastructure and energy sector, spanning 80+ countries, across all asset classes, and is committed to support the hydrogen value chain globally through this Global Committee. 

This global committee meets once every two months via video calling to share the current sentiment, investment appetite and debate where the market is going. The main goal is that the committee can inspire and foster best practices and projects, influence frameworks and bring to light crucial discussions involving any matters on production, storage, distribution, sustainability, investments and impacts of H2 beyond the sectors the members are in.

VISION

IN everything we do we believe in creating meaningful relationships - we believe in celebrating what makes each of us unique and bridging gaps.

We do this by designing experiences that bring bright minds together to help them build meaningful relations. We connect the dots between individuals and businesses understanding what makes them tick. We believe in the power of the relationship in an era of digitalisation.

We are the essence of global leadership; we are minds connected shaping the future; together, we generate economic growth, we move economies.

Being a leader is having the ability to translate ideas into attitudes, transform thoughts into new projects, bring the future to the present, forge new paths where they don't exist. That's leadership, that's your GRI Club.

RUNNING OUR COMMITTEES

OUR Committees eMeetings will also have one of our members moderating the discussion (Chairperson). In the absence of the chairperson, one of the 2 vice-chairs will ensure the conversation is fluid and everyone can join.
