Our investment

The private equity sector is uniquely positioned to drive the transition to net zero emissions at a business level, given its ability to influence a diverse range of mid-market companies.

In its first investment in private equity, the CEFC made a cornerstone investment of $80 million in Adamantem Capital Fund II.

The $795 million Fund II targets mid-market companies, with a focus on consumer staples, healthcare and business-to-business services.

The Fund’s ‘cradle to grave’ approach to the emissions impact of portfolio businesses involves pursuing a net zero emissions reduction strategy for each asset.  

When you talk to the operating priorities of companies, they are significantly affected by the day-to-day challenges that climate change is inflicting on businesses. We see that from the bushfires, the droughts, the floods, which are causing all sorts of operational disruptions. By getting a baseline of climate risks and carbon intensity we’re in a better position to work with management to mitigate those risks, even in a 3-5-year hold period.
