Our vision reconciles economic and sustainable development. We believe that businesses whose products and services have a positive impact on the environment are more likely to deliver positive financial returns as well.


A deep, pan-European, fully resourced team with a complementary blend of private equity, consulting, operational and M&A experience.


Ambienta targets niche European SMEs driven by environmental themes, with scalable business models, large and growing international end-markets, and mission critical products or services.


Partners for growth: 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.


The Ambienta team is led by an experienced and cohesive group of six Partners, thoughtfully constructed in order to best source, access and grow European SMEs.

The Partners are supported by a like-minded team of international professionals across Europe, all of whom are high caliber individuals, with backgrounds in consulting, banking, industry and private equity. Ambienta operates as a “one firm” culture in a highly entrepreneurial environment.


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.. Ambienta consistently focuses on understanding and getting ahead of these trends, to improve origination effectiveness, unlock fruitful relationships with entrepreneurs and managers and ultimately deliver strong financial returns for investors.
