Extract from our Managing Partner’s letter in the report

At Verdane, we seek to prove that there is no contradiction between generating world-class returns for investors and being a force for good in society. This overarching ambition guides which companies we invest in, and how we help develop and future-proof those companies during our ownership. It has also led Verdane to establish sustainability-related goals to be reached by 2030 for our own operations, as well as for those of our portfolio companies. We are encouraged by the progress made across both dimensions in 2023, but there is still a lot of work to be done.


Verdane is on a mission to digitise and decarbonise Europe. We recognise that the dual forces of digitalisation and decarbonisation are propelling growth and innovation. Our commitment to investing in companies that align with this vision is unwavering, as we strive to nudge the world towards a more sustainable future. We invite you to delve into this report, which we hope will inspire accountability and action.
