Our commitments

We are convinced that companies have the ability to generate a positive impact on the economy and mitigate the risks associated with climate change. In supporting businesses – as well as in real estate – our approach revolves around the implementation and the continuous improvement of sustainable development criteria, seen as true value creation levers. As proof of our commitment, Abenex, a prupose driven company, was among of the first private equity funds signatories of the PRI in 2011 and has obtained B Corp certification.

Our support approach:

Addressing tomorrow’s challenges sustainably.
We invest alongside the management team because we believe in their strategic vision and their sustainable development plan for their companies.

In collaboration with the management, we aim to accelerate the development, profitability, and environmental performance of portfolio companies, while ensuring their long-term sustainability.

Created in 2009, the Abenex operational team was a pioneer in France at the time, and illustrates the operational involvement we envisage in our investment business. At the management teams’ request, its role is to support companies in the deployment of their strategic action plans to acheive jointly agreed objectives.
