The Summit Partners Sustainable Opportunities Fund invests in companies with disruptive, market-driven solutions to global sustainability challenges. The long-term case for sustainably oriented businesses is strong and is supported both by the increasing availability of economically viable models and by meaningful demographic tailwinds. The fund targets companies that provide products and solutions that reduce resource requirements, reduce waste, increase efficiency and reflect consumer preferences for healthy lifestyle alternatives. The fund holds approximately 60 positions including both the long and the short sides.

Why we invest:

Summit Partners Sustainable Opportunities Fund has a direct focus on impact. It sits within our broader allocation of clean energy, technology, infrastructure and water impact investing, which contributes to a healthier and more sustainable world. The fund’s ability to go short provides protection during times of overall market volatility and lowers the risk of the total portfolio.
