WAVE invests in essential industries—clean energy, food, water and waste recycling—that are critical for a healthy planet and harmonious society. Hence, the ESG impact is not an afterthought but a core value inherent to our private equity investments.

Our portfolio companies generate strong environmental, social and governance (ESG) impact at no cost to the customer. Their innovative solutions enhance industrial efficiency and resource productivity, which improve existing processes/products while saving money for their customers. Our investment practices adhere to the dictum:

That which is not profitable, is not sustainable.

MULTI-DIMENSIONAL IMPACT

WAVE’s investment activities promote financial responsibility as well as environmental, social and governance (ESG) impact. In fact, we believe that these goals are inherently linked and complementary. Our companies lift the value curve to higher plateaus and their impacts are long-lasting because their advanced technology platforms improve ESG performance by:

  • Conserving the use of energy, water and other natural resources

  • Creating high quality manufacturing jobs in rural communities with low to moderate incomes

  • Investing in employee and stakeholder development, training and education

  • Advocating opportunities for women and minorities

  • Promoting ESG dialog and ethics through community, school, industry and civic engagements

  • Reducing pollution and waste, and promoting close-loop recycling of natural resources, and

  • Incorporating responsible governance measures in the board and management practices
