Bringing impact to life

Core Sustainability Capital is a private equity firm that invests in Nordic companies with sustainable impact as their core value.

Anchoring sustainability across our portfolio

CS Capital was born from a desire to link impact to financial performance.
Our ambition is to create a cluster of sustainable investments that reflects a best-in-class, impact-driven portfolio.

We are dedicated to creating impact within our three investment pillars – renewable energy and energy efficiency, resource optimization, and societal health. We invest in technologies known to have a proven track record of generating not only attractive returns but also a measurable, positive impact on the planet.

At CS Capital, impact comes first. We invest with the intention of generating environmental and/or social impact alongside a financial return. We focus on the “missing middle”: the growth stage, where profitable companies need to scale and where the established infrastructure needs to be expanded.
Our value proposition lies in taking active ownership of our investments and providing support in lifting our assets to the highest standards within sustainability. Our approach to sustainability is based on our extensive impact framework that ensures a thorough alignment with international regulatory directories, as well as leading global standards and metrics for measuring and reporting impact.
