Eurazeo Adds Planetary Boundaries Fund

French investment group and asset manager Eurazeo has launched the Eurazeo Planetary Boundaries Fund (EPBF), a thematic impact buyout vehicle aiming to reverse or adapt to the overstepping of planetary boundaries. The Stockholm Resilience Centre describes the concept of “planetary boundaries” as humanity’s safe operating space within Earth’s ecological limits. The EPBF will have a target size of at least €750 million (US$812.2 million), with an investment strategy focusing on two core themes: boosting a regenerative and circular economy, and championing solutions for transition and adaptation. The fund will invest in small to mid-market companies, primarily in Europe, in order to scale them up through ambitious buy-and-build strategies, in sectors including agriculture and food, water management, and low-carbon energy. Eurazeo has €35 billion in AUM invested across more than 600 companies. “For several years, the concept of planetary boundaries has been a central concern of mine. The ongoing impact revolution presents numerous opportunities for forward-thinking investors,” said Sophie Flak, Member of Eurazeo’s Executive Board. “Our EPBF approach allows us not only to tackle large-scale issues that reach beyond climate change, but by merging science and business, [to] empower investors to address the most pressing challenges of the transition to a circular and regenerative economy.”
