Amsterdam-based DuurzaamInvesteren.nl, an online investment platform designed for sustainable energy projects in the Netherlands, announced that it has raised €35.2M in 26 offers in the first six months of 2022. This is an increase of 53 per cent compared to 2021, where there were 17 offers, says the company.
DuurzaamInvesteren.nl is seeing growth mainly in the sustainable energy and e-mobility sectors. The company says that even with the unstable economic climate, there is still a growing interest in investing in sustainable projects.
In a recent poll, most investors showed that they are interested in companies or offers with a sustainable aspect.
“The world looks very different, with major economic changes and uncertainties. Nevertheless, the projects on our platform are successfully concluded,” explains CEO Dennis Kromhout van der Meer. “An offer has to be good, in keeping with the spirit of the times in terms of interest and duration, but sustainability is the most important thing for our investors. They want to accelerate the energy transition and contribute to the realisation of a future-proof world.”
