Our keys sectors

 

Our investments cover 5 keys areas to develop infrastructure that ensures tangible improvements in people's lives.

Energy

Generation, storage, transmission and distribution in renewable energy, electricity and gas...

Access to energy is a real issue for sustainable development in emerging countries. At our modest level, our mission is to strengthen our target countries’ energy sector. This commitment involves the diversification of sources for production with a focus on renewable energy, as well as improving network quality. 

Environment

Water and waste treatment, sanitation, incineration, heating networks…

In Africa, 300 million people don’t have access to drinking water . Solving this problem presents a development focus that is becoming increasingly critical as global warming progresses. STOA, aware of these important challenges, plans to invest in projects that improve the resilience of water management and waste treatment systems. 

Telecommunications

Web, fibre optic, undersea cables, data centres, satellites…

Because the digital economy plays a significant role in the overall dynamics of world markets, emerging countries should have access to higher performing telecommunication infrastructure. STOA hopes to work towards setting up new communication technologies, and expanding telecommunication networks in emerging countries.

Transport

Highways, roads, bridges, tunnels, ports, airports, urban transit, railways...

Transportation infrastructure remains generally insufficient to meet the needs of emerging countries for example the proportion of paved roads in Africa is only 2km/100km , 3km in Latin-America and 25 km in Asia, compared with 122 in Europe. This discrepancy is just as visible regarding port infrastructure: in Africa, the largest ports handle less than 45% of the hourly volume of shipments in transit through Europe. 

Social

Hospitals, clinics, universities, public buildings, student residencies...

The need for public buildings – hospitals, universities, and civil services– is particularly important in countries in emerging regions with road and energy infrastructures that meet their basic needs. These countries provide us with interesting investment opportunities: financing high-quality infrastructure for health, education, and administrative services.
