The importance of ESG, and the ability to monitor and manage performance data, will continue to drive significant interest from financial investors.

In Apax Global Impact, the Company has found the perfect partner with strong alignment given their thematic focus on reducing environmental harm and resource use.It was a pleasure working with the Apax team and we look forward to seeing how they can help IES reach its potential.”
