Creating impact

A sustainable combination of financial, social and environmental results

Impact private equity with a unique approach

We invest in mid-sized companies in Northern Europe (Nordics, DACH and Benelux). 

We assess companies across most sectors to benefit from global megatrends e.g. urbanization, resource scarcity and technological advances. In addition to the financial performance potential, each company is evaluated from a sustainability perspective in order to understand how it can make a lasting positive ESG impact and contribute to one or more of the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. 

Our proprietary Trill IMPACT Model is designed to identify, access and accelerate the value creation and sustainability in businesses. 

  • The model is based on globally recognized impact and ESG frameworks including the full scope of the 17 SDG, the Impact Management Project, the Operating Principles for Impact Management and the 10 principles of UN Global Compact. 
  • In terms of what and how to measure impact, Trill Impact is using a relevant set of sustainability indicators and KPIs primarily from the EU Taxonomy, IRIS+, SASB and GRI.
