Private Equity

Partners for growth: as entrepreneurs ourselves we help niche leading European businesses driven by environmental trends develop into scaled industry champions.

Ambienta is a highly engaged shareholder, leveraging its strong consulting, industrial and sector expertise to support management in capturing new growth opportunities. Its target universe of businesses typically have grown significantly, often under founding families, but today face challenges and see opportunities beyond the reach of their existing operational or geographical footprint. Ambienta supports them to capture this new phase of growth and development through a pan-European investment team, a large network of C-executives and a dedicated value creation team fully dedicated.

Ambienta X – Public Markets

We believe environmental sustainability is the greatest opportunity of our generation and we believe investing alongside it, will both promote sustainability acceleration and improve financial returns.

We monitor and report around our sustainability objectives and have developed innovative and proprietary methodologies to assess contribution of public companies to environmental sustainability objectives

Team

The Ambienta team is led by an experienced and cohesive leadership team which brought together top tier experiences in respective fields to build a global leader in sustainable investing.

Sustainability

Environmental sustainability trends, namely Resource Efficiency and Pollution Control, represent a theme that cuts across traditional sectors, shape industries and value chains and ultimately drive risks and opportunities for companies and investors. Sustainability, similarly to digitalization, is and will permeate society for decades to come. Providing sustainable solutions to global environmental issues is a strong source of competitive advantage. Ambienta consistently focuses on understanding and getting ahead of these trends, to foster investment ideas generation, improve local team origination effectiveness, unlock fruitful relationships with entrepreneurs and managers and ultimately deliver strong financial returns for investors across our businesses.

Ambienta’s Sustainability and Strategy team is our dedicated division to both develop investment ideas and support investment cases discussion across our asset classes, and build our proprietary sustainability measurement approaches.
