by Ambienta

Milan, 2 March 2018. Ambienta is pleased to announce that it has been named the 2017 Firm of the year in Italy in the Private Equity International Awards.

The Private Equity International Awards are conferred annually and voted on entirely by industry participants. The publication’s editorial team researched and compiled shortlists of nominations for 68 categories this year, open to both generalist and specialist industry players, and announced the winners in the Private Equity International Annual Review on 1st March 2018.

This achievement follows a strong year for Ambienta, during which the firm completed three primary acquisitions, and a very successful exit with a value of €330 million, having initially invested just €50 million.

In 2017 alone, Ambienta’s portfolio companies’ products and services saved the energy equivalent to the annual consumption of approximately 900,000 refrigerators, and reduced water pollution in an amount equivalent to volume of water consumed annually by approximately 33 million European households.

Nino Tronchetti Provera, Founder and Managing Partner at Ambienta, said: “We are very grateful to receive this prestigious industry award. It reinforces our core principle that the way to drive sustainable value is through investing in companies driven by environmental trends. Ambienta has proven that sustainable returns come from sustainable investing.”
