Environmental Impact Analysis


The Firm assesses the Environmental Impact of its potential investments using 11 Environmental Metrics

Ambienta has developed a proprietary Methodology, the Environmental Impact Analysis (EIA), to capture the full Environmental Impact of companies with different business models operating across a variety of sectors and at different stages of the value chain. This methodology allows us to focus on companies whose environmental impact is a driver of company success, whose impact is material and measurable. Our holistic approach requires us to measure impact against a wide set of 11 metrics capturing the entire spectrum of environmental sustainability, and we report this impact annually to our investors.

Environmental Impact Analysis and the UN Sustainable Development Goals

Our Methodology and its Metrics are fully aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Through our investment scope definition that focuses on products and services that improve Resource Efficiency and Pollution Control, we fully capture ten of the 17 Goals and their respective sub-goals. Both the Resource Efficiency and the Pollution Control environmental theses allow us to identify a clear-cut match with the SDG’s long-term objectives. We share with our investors a detailed review of how our portfolio fits with the SDGs.
