Our understanding of sustainability

For CONSTELLATION, taking responsibility is part of our corporate philosophy. We are aware of the responsibility we bear towards our portfolio companies, partners, employees, investors, our environment and our surroundings as a whole and would like to fulfil this responsibility with the greatest possible care.

Our sustainability aspirations fulfil at least one of our three guiding principles


Healthy body

CONSTELLATION is committed to create sustainable value for the health of all stakeholders in its investments.


Healthy mind

CONSTELLATION is committed to create framework conditions through its participations to nurture and promote mental health in our society.


Healthy planet

Environmental friendliness is one of the most significant aspects of the 21st century. For this reason, CONSTELLATION is committed to minimise the ecological impact through its participations.

Environmental, social and governance (ESG) issues are indispensable. Our values and principles are based on the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations and are set out in our ESG Policy.

As the first independent private equity firm with a focus on the DACH region, CONSTELLATION is proud to be part of Swiss Sustainable Finance. With over 220 members, Swiss Sustainable Finance is one of the most important players in the discourse on sustainability in the Swiss financial market.

CONSTELLATION supports the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations. The UN initiative runs until 2030 and aims to achieve global sustainable development in economic, social and ecological terms.

The UN Principles for Responsible Investment (UN PRI), defined in 2006, set the framework for sustainable and responsible investment decision-making processes. CONSTELLATION has committed itself to the principles as a signatory.
