Ambienta is a leading pan-European private equity firm, operating out of Milan, Düsseldorf and London. Founded in 2007, Ambienta was established to capture the vast growth opportunity in privately owned European businesses supported by indisputable environmental drivers.
The firm’s founders have been pioneers of environment-related businesses since the 1990s. We take pride in being one of the only investors to appreciate early the significant opportunity for private equity firms to invest in proven companies offering products and services that reduce pollution and enable more efficient usage of natural resources. This approach has delivered top quartile returns for our investors.
With funds under management of over €500 million, the world’s largest capital pool for this strategy, Ambienta has made more than 25 investments over the past decade.
As a trusted partner to family-owned companies, Ambienta invests in small and medium-sized businesses. We apply our industrial approach and extensive local networks to support our companies to transform into scaled international industry champions, working with businesses to develop and apply technologies to foster efficiency and contribute to a healthier environment.
Our focus is on Europe because it is a region typified by a relative scarcity of natural resources, a strong industrial base and high population density, and as such has led the world in the development of environmental solutions. Since environmental trends affects almost all aspects of economic development, we built an extraordinary footprint across a broad range of industries and value chains.
