At Abénex, we are convinced that in order to create long-term value and ensure that the companies we support thrive, it is essential to take into account sustainable growth. This is recognized by B Corp, which identifies companies that respect the environment, society and its stakeholders, and that see their businesses as a force for good.
For many years, Abénex has been committed on a daily basis to ESG issues as a whole, for example by having joined the International Climate Initiative on the environmental aspect engaging with companies in our portfolio to reduce their carbon footprint or by having classified our funds as Article 8 under SFDR.
Today, Abénex is shifting gears and obtains the B Corp certification, endorsing its involvement as a positive impact management company, a pioneering move for a private equity buyout fund.
After a rigorous certification process, the team is proud to join a community of companies committed to a process of continuously improving their social and environmental performance. Being a certified B Corp is the recognition of our long-term commitment to doing business more responsibly with a positive impact.
Companies are an important catalyst of change to transform our society and B Corp defines a path of continuous improvement and progress to activate this lever.
For Abénex, this is another milestone on our roadmap to strengthen our impact on the companies in our portfolio by encouraging them to meet their environmental, social and societal challenges. Our certification is thus further proof of our commitment towards our community, our environment, our employees, our portfolio companies and our investors.
