Apheon has today published its 2022-2023 sustainability report, taking the opportunity to reaffirm its convictions, ambition and approach on sustainability.
We at Apheon believe that as the world transitions, financial players and in particular private equity firms have a responsibility towards the planet and society, and are in a position to drive forward sustainability actions.
We are further convinced that businesses that respect the planet, look after their employees, and support their communities will in turn attract the best talent, differentiate themselves from competition and ultimately emerge as the strongest in the future.
We are therefore keen to contribute to the development of sustainable finance and aim to do so by placing sustainability at the core of our strategy, demonstrating by example that sustainable finance delivers higher and better value for investors.
Wolfgang de Limburg, Managing Partner of Apheon commented: “At Apheon, we firmly believe that promoting environmental, social and governance principles generates long term value. Sustainability is therefore at the core of our strategy and we see it as a fantastic opportunity to also engage all our portfolio companies, investors, and various other stakeholders.”
Patrick Gavoty, Managing Director & Head of Sustainability at Apheon added: “With 7 offices and 21 portfolio companies across Europe, we have a true responsibility and ability to do our part in creating a positive impact on the planet and society. This is what we intend to do collectively and pragmatically, improving every day.”
