ESG in Action

Ambienta’s internationally recognised ESG integration programme is deeply rooted in its culture and operations.

Ambienta strives to integrate sustainability and ESG management practices into day-to-day operations within our firm and across all asset classes, while engaging with industry stakeholders to promote adoption of sustainability-driven best practices.

We strive to promote responsible management practices in the industry through pervasiveness within our firm and portfolio companies, effectiveness in execution and direct accountability of investment teams. Ambienta’s ESG approach is guided by our award-winning ESG integration programme, the “ESG in Action”, which operates as a risk management and shared value creation tool for the benefit of all stakeholders.

ESG integration is rooted in Ambienta’s Responsible Investment Policy, which sets the bar of our ambition. The policy describes the centrality of the UNPRI Six Principles for Responsible Investment and the Ten Principles of the United Nationals Global Compact (UNGC) and how they are integrated into Ambienta’s investment management and decision-making process.

Responsible Investment Policy

Ambienta is committed to mitigate and reduce climate change beyond its investment strategy. We developed a firm level Net Zero Strategy to drive climate reduction activities within our private equity portfolio and to engage with stakeholders to promote emission reduction practices to achieve Paris Agreement targets.

Net Zero Strategy

At Ambienta, the integration of sustainability risks in the investment process informs investment decisions and contributes to the generation of attractive risk-adjusted returns over the medium to long-term. Sustainability risks are rooted in Ambienta’s firm-wide Risk Policy which outlines our risk management framework, including the procedures to ensure the effectiveness and adequacy of sustainability risk integration.

To this end, Ambienta’s approach to remuneration was designed in such a way to be consistent with the integration of material sustainability risks in investment decisions. Together with the centralized Sustainability & Strategy function, our investment team is fully accountable for the integration of ESG and is instrumental in driving execution. ESG is assessed across all phases of the investment process through fundamental proprietary analysis and, where relevant, third-party ESG due diligence.

Pursuant to Ambienta’s Responsible Investment Policy, the firm considers principal adverse impacts of investment decisions on the sustainability factors understood to be material for the companies we invest in through a combination of proprietary tools and external market research analysis.

As the set of indicators reported in the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (“SFDR”) is not mandatory for Ambienta, the firm is yet to systematically integrate the consideration of the proposed principal adverse impacts into its analysis and decision-making. It is the intention to voluntarily integrate such analysis as the firm continues its growth trajectory and increases internal capacity.

We actively engage with industry stakeholders through multiple associations and certifications including the UNPRI, the world’s leading proponent of responsible investment for which we have been signatory since 2012.
