Sustainability continues to be an important theme for investors as the critical role of business (and the associated need for capital) in building a sustainable future and addressing environmental challenges is increasingly recognized and appreciated, in particular in Asia.

Asia represents both the world’s biggest sustainability challenge and opportunity, and Asian businesses, investors, and regulators have a critical role to play.

BDA’s dedicated global Sustainability team supports our financial sponsor and corporate clients to accelerate their respective ambitions through M&A, capital raises, joint ventures, and restructuring in the sustainability and circular economy space. Our team focuses on five key sustainability thematics:

  • Water and wastewater treatment
  • Waste management and recycling
  • Environmental services
  • Energy transition
  • Envirotech

Our Sustainability team combines deep domain expertise with local insights across all BDA offices, allowing for international access and delivering solutions to best support client needs.
