Ambienta is a leading pan-European middle-market investor focused on acquiring rapidly expanding companies capturing long-term environmental trends.
We have a proven strategy of investing in such SMEs across Europe, which we believe comprises a broad and deep landscape of attractive targets whose products and services are now in global demand. Our model has been refined to execute on this approach, combining knowledge-based sourcing with a strong local relationship network to identify and access attractive companies.
Founded in 2007, Ambienta is one of the largest and most experienced sustainability investors. We are an independent partnership and manage over €1.2 billion of assets, the world’s largest capital pool for this strategy. Our investor base consists of a diversified mix of blue-chip global investors, which include insurance companies, banks, pension funds, foundations and asset managers.
We believe that investing in sustainability-driven businesses delivers both top quartile financial returns and measured, solid environmental impact.
Today, there is a €3 trillion+ European sustainability-driven investment opportunity, supported by indisputable long-term drivers. We focus on investing in family/entrepreneur-owned companies in niche industries and build these “pocket multinationals” into scaled industry champions. We rely on a deep, pan-European team of over 30 professionals across 3 European offices, including a multi-cultural investment team and a dedicated sustainability & strategy team. Our strategy has delivered top quartile returns to our investors.
