ESG in Action

Ambienta’s internationally recognised ESG in Action 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.
