Our track record

More than 18 years of experience with a focus on decarbonisation

Founded in 2001 by Roman Rosslenbroich and Dieter Rentsch, Aquila Capital started to focus on climate change mitigation in 2007 with the launch of two funds – climate protection and forestry management – after deciding to manage our corporate carbon footprint (Scope 1-3) in 2006. We started making direct investments in clean energy assets with wind energy in 2009, solar PV in 2010 and hydropower in 2011.   

Another important milestone was obtaining our license as an alternative investment fund manager in Luxembourg and Germany in 2013, which enabled the structuring and distribution of alternatives funds that invest in assets for the energy transition and decarbonisation of the world's economy. That same year we also made our first direct investment for our green logistics business.   

At the end of 2023, we entered a strategic partnership with Commerzbank to establish Aquila Capital as one of Europe’s leading asset managers for sustainable investment strategies.1 We also decided to become a UN Global Compact participant to maintain our focus on human rights and good governance. 

Timeline track record
