TowerBrook Capital Partners (“TowerBrook”), the London and New York-based international investment firm, today announces it has made a strategic investment in Envevo, one of the first investments for its dedicated impact strategy.
Envevo is a fast-growing business focused on the design and installation of EV charging points to B2B settings. The company’s capabilities cover the full project lifecycle from conception and design to construction and project management, providing turnkey engineering solutions to operators of forecourts and motorway services, private settings such as hotels and car parks, and other customers including fleet depots. Founded in 2019, Envevo has a unique service proposition, a diversified client base of large businesses, a strong management team and an attractive growth profile.
TowerBrook’s impact strategy builds on the firm’s capabilities as a leader in responsible ownership and impact investing. TowerBrook was the first mainstream private equity firm to be certified as a B Corp and has significant experience in delivering improved ESG performance across its private equity and Structured Opportunities (TSO) portfolios. The dedicated impact strategy is a natural evolution of TowerBrook’s established investment strategy, investing in businesses designed to generate a specific measurable social or environmental impact, while seeking to deliver market returns.
Gordon Holmes, Chief Investment Officer of TowerBrook, said:
“We are excited to announce our partnership with Envevo, one of the first investments in our dedicated impact strategy. Envevo is a high-quality business with a compelling business model that is helping to drive the increased uptake of electric vehicles across the UK, encouraging the use of greener energy and reduction of carbon emissions. We are thrilled to support a business like Envevo, with its unique proposition, diversified client base and strong management team, as it seeks to accelerate its already impressive growth.”
Michael Kennedy, CEO of Envevo, said:
“We are delighted to announce our partnership with TowerBrook Capital. Over the past four years Envevo has established itself as a market leader in the EV and renewables sectors and this new partnership will allow us to accelerate our business plan and capitalize on all the opportunities as the UK moves towards decarbonization.
We are looking forward to working with TowerBrook Capital and their team to complement the existing management structure in place at Envevo. Their support will allow us to continue to grow at scale and ensure we continue to support the acceleration to net zero.
Finally, as TowerBrook Capital replace BW Ventures LLP, we would like to thank them for their contribution over the last four years.”
