Resource Efficiency, Pollution Reduction & New Materials

  • Products (hardware and software) and services that increase resource efficiency and/or reduce environmental impact, as well as utilize innovative, environmentally friendly materials
  • Innovative, cost-competitive suppliers that integrate sustainability into their business models create attractive growth segments within traditional industries
  • Particularly interesting investments in medium-sized companies with defendable business models that also offer above-average exposure to corresponding growth drivers

Renewable Energy

  • Proven technologies, increasingly in combination with storage, are growing rapidly within the infrastructure asset class and offer stable cash returns due to long-term purchase agreements and in some cases additional environmental certificates
  • In private equity, a wide variety of different growth companies with innovative products (hardware and software) and services along the value chain
  • Cost reduction, storage, distributed supply, smart-metering, customer segmentation, repowering, and a tight focus on specific market segments or regions drive returns

Sustainable Timberland

  • Sustainably and efficiently cultivated mixed forests and plantations, including hard and softwoods and manufacturing of special products and semi-finished goods
  • Continuous and sustainable production of a naturally growing real asset with limited availability and increasing long-term demand
  • Permanent conservation of forest areas, sale of carbon credits and local impact projects are important value drivers and components of risk management

Sustainable Mobility & Supply Chain Management

  • Climate-friendly mobility and transport systems and intelligent, software-driven business models in areas such as fleet and traffic management, car-sharing, e-mobility and public transportation
  • Integrated, efficient supply chain management, such as reverse logistics and reduction of resource consumption and food waste
  • Attractive business models which reduce cost and capital intensity with innovative solutions that contribute to a climate-neutral closed-loop society

Green Real Estate & Affordable Housing

  • Fundamentally defensive and proven strategies (a combination of Core Plus and Value-Add) in affordable, urban housing in close proximity to public transport for families, senior citizens and other population segments
  • High demand, high occupancy and low turnover rates create a diversified investment profile with non-correlated income stability in market downturns – and attractive cash distributions and total return
  • Selective capital investments that improve resource efficiency with rapid payback reduce operating and utility costs and increase building value
