Case study: Fore Freedom – ESG as part of Ancala’s exit from Fore Freedom
In 2020, Ancala realised its investment in Fore Freedom, a leading, independent owner and operator of fibre-to-the-office high speed networks in business parks across the Netherlands. As part of the exit preparation, Ancala worked with the management team of Fore Freedom to clearly articulate and communicate the ESG strategy and performance of the business and its value add to potential buyers.
Key aspects included:
- emissions savings for customers through access to and use of reliable, high-speed network infrastructure
- strong focus on employee engagement and rewards
- a robust and tested approach to health and safety management
- strong partnerships with local construction companies for network expansion
The ESG improvement plans for the business and ESG track record of the new owner enable Fore Freedom to continue advancing its ESG strategy.
