Environmental conservation and financial performance

Our Group’s commitment to sustainable finance led us to develop expertise in environmental issues and brownfield remediation. We use our private equity platform to initiate partnerships and become involved in complex remediation projects, which are sources of financial performance and environmental benefits.

" The search for an environmental, social and economic return for all stakeholders implies structuring urban projects on the scale of cities and neighbourhoods. The projects rely on solid teams and investors who have strong convictions and a true long-term societal vision."
Bruno Farber Managing Director, Ginkgo Advisor
What defines us

A practical commitment to remediation

  • Meeting tomorrow's environmental and urban challenges

    Europe currently has over three million polluted sites. These abandoned sites are a source of major health and environmental risks.

    They are sometimes located in urban areas which suffer from a structural shortage of building land. The brownfields provide a tremendous opportunity for redevelopment to recycle whole areas and implement sustainable urban planning.

  • A key role in the design and management of remediation projects

    Our team purchases as-is properties and then defines, finances, executes and coordinates remediation operations prior to site redevelopment. The team brings its added value to all of the players involved in a brownfield remediation project. They include the owners of contaminated properties, local authorities, developer-builders and end-users.

  • High-impact projects

    With nearly 200,000 m² in building rights being prepared or under development, our pollution remediation projects private equity solution has created more than 5,000 jobs through the projects involved and should eventually lead to the creation of 3,000 housing units.
