Our investment decisions are heavily driven by ESG considerations.
We seek only to invest in sustainable industries and in companies that have implemented high standards in regard to CSR related topics. We strive for a healthy heart, a healthy mind, and a healthy planet.
Our current fund, CONSTELLATION V is invested in three platform companies, all of which have a direct positive impact on global ESG issues.
Swiss E-Mobility Group
CONSTELLATION has played an integral part in shaping one of Switzerland's leading retailers in E-Bikes, the Swiss E-Mobility Group. Our efforts have put us at the forefront of enabling environmentally-friendly mobility in the DACH region. E-bikes are emission-free, and their convenient availability incentivizes the reduction of fossil fuel-based transportation. They have the potential of significantly reducing traffic congestion in cities and may play an important part in decreasing our need for largescale parking infrastructure.
Our second portfolio company, CONSTELLATION ACADEMY GmbH, is focused on job market-oriented vocational training, for both job market entrants and those changing jobs at all ages. In a time when jobs are disappearing due to automatization, digitalization, and outsourcing, CONSTELLATION ACADEMY GmbH is helping people develop new skills and training, which facilitate their reintegration into the job market. We strongly believe in the positive social impact that our academy can have on the lives of thousands of people working in disrupted industries.
Building logistics is a relatively new and strongly growing business service segment, which can be applied to various construction sites. Having emerged from the lean construction concept, building logistics is focused on efficient resource and waste management, which minimizes the negative environmental impacts that stem from large scale construction sites. With our third portfolio company, CONSTELLATION Baulogistik GmbH, we are seeking to become the largest provider of building logistics in the DACH region. We strongly believe that reforming our construction sites, by integrating a new governance concept that includes various ESG factors, will drive substantial change within the construction industry for many years to come.
