"El haber" could be translated as "having". So, "...having started blah blah is attributed to him..." We use the article to transform the verb into a noun. Example sentences: ¿Es posible que *el tomar sol* genere una adicción? Is it possible that *sunbathing *generates an addiction ? *El tomar* agua es esencial para lograr la pérdida de peso. *Drinking* water is essential to achieve weight loss. I hope that's of help.
