Notes to Editors - About Impax Asset Management

Founded in 1998, Impax is a specialist asset manager, with approximately £37.0bn / US$46.7bn as of 31 May 2022 in both listed and private markets strategies, investing in the opportunities arising from the transition to a more sustainable global economy.

Impax believes that capital markets will be shaped profoundly by global sustainability challenges, including climate change, pollution and essential investments in human capital, infrastructure and resource efficiency. These trends will drive growth for well-positioned companies and create risks for those unable or unwilling to adapt.
