Invest Europe, the association representing Europe’s private equity, venture capital, and infrastructure sectors, as well as their investors, has decided on its climate ambition. The mission statement will serve as clear guiding principles for its work, both internally and externally, in the years to come.
As the representative organisation for an industry that has an unparalleled skillset in long-term financing of transitions, delivering change management and strategic direction, Invest Europe is uniquely placed to play a meaningful and positive role in achieving the climate neutrality goals set out by the EU and by global partners in the Paris Accord. Hence, Invest Europe commits to actively contribute to the EU becoming climate-neutral by 2050.
Invest Europe, as an association, also pledges to take the necessary steps to become a carbon-neutral organisation by 2030.
In order to achieve the mission statement’s ambitious aspirations, Invest Europe will continue to deploy a comprehensive strategy focused on five key areas:
This integrated approach represents Invest Europe’s commitment to broaden the scope of its support, resources, and tools provided to its members so that the industry can "walk the talk".
Eric de Montgolfier, CEO, Invest Europe, commented:
Invest Europe published its second Climate Change Guide earlier this year, giving members guidance on integrating climate considerations into investment decisions and engaging with portfolio companies on climate change issues. Further guides are planned to give managers and investors more detailed and practical information in playing their part in a sustainable future.
