The ESG City Impact Fund was established in 2020 to have a positive social and environmental impact, particulary through the sustainable reuse of existing buildings and urban regeneration.

“Exceeding €500 million in capital committed by primary national institutional investors is an important milestone for the Coima ESG City Impact Fund,” said said Coima founder and CEO Manfredi Catella. “This will ensure the fund can deliver on its mission of generating positive social and environmental impact through the sustainable reuse of buildings and urban regeneration, helping accelerate the transition of Italian cities to a low carbon economy.”
