Through this IPO we seek to provide a strongly positioned ESG company in North-Western Europe with access to capital, unlocking a unique opportunity for growth. Together with our hands-on team, we look forward to further fuel the transition from a private to a public company, as we previously did with Alfen. We believe Euronext Amsterdam is very attractive for ESG companies as it is located in the heart of North-Western Europe, an area with many opportunities in the field of energy transition and water technology in which we have built a strong track record.”
