IPM, in partnership with Slovak Investment Holding (SIH), has successfully launched a waste management fund in the first quarter of 2019.
IPM Avanea Eco Management, a member of IPM Group and fund co-investor, is leading the waste management fund through which prospective companies will be sought and financed. The goal is to increase market capacities in waste sorting, valorisation, and recycling.
The importance of supporting circular economy and hence achieve long-term environmental sustainability is currently number one global priority to be tackled. Investment goal is to allocate upwards of EUR30m in the upcoming five-year period through Equity & Quazi-Equity into Greenfield or Brownfield projects. Investments will aid the portfolio companies to take on new technologies and help the industry transition.
The investment focus is largely on the companies carrying out: preparation for waste reuse, waste recycling along with reprocessing, valorisation of biodegradable waste, material valorisation and mechanical-biological reprocessing of mixed municipal waste.
