Our investment strategy focuses on sustainable businesses in the circular economy, green energies, and ecological paper. Our investment approach is long-term, allowing us to grow the company’s values sustainably. Sustainability doesn’t just mean continuity. It applies in the traditional sense and in accordiance with economy, ecology, and social competence.
Steinbeis Holding’s areas of expertise
Corporate and management culture have a long-standing tradition at Steinbeis. A more than 150-year history has been shaped by the paper industry and the timber and forestry sector. Other significant chapters in the family’s history are its involvement in economic politics and its promotion of industrialisation in Wuerttemberg, major engineering achievements such as the construction of the first rack railway in Germany in 1912, and the production of graphical papers based on waste paper as a secondary raw material. The generations of expertise acquired from these activities is reflected in the areas in which the group is active and invests today.
Increasing long-term company value
The lead markets of environmental technology are a model of success and show strong growth driven by the megatrends of climate change and resource scarcity. Product and system solutions are needed worldwide. As an entrepreneurial holding, we search for businesses and projects that are active in the lead markets of green energy, the circular economy, and ecological production. Through long-term commitments, we aim to exploit these markets’ potential for success and growth and achieve a substantial increase in the value of our company. Steinbeis Holding does not intervene in operational business; affiliated companies pursue independent strategies.
The management of Steinbeis Holding has many years of experience in setting up, financing, and running companies in the energy technology, paper recycling, circular economy, and renewable energy sectors.
