Like its predecessor Brownfields Redevelopment Fund, Brownfields 3 is an environmental infrastructure fund dedicated to the remediation and redevelopment of environmentally impaired sites.

The Fund purchases former industrial, tertiary or commercial facilities, takes responsibility for asbestos removal, demolition and remediation, and defines a redevelopment program in close collaboration with the local communities. Such programs often are based on housing (including social housing) but can also include tertiary, commercial or industrial developments. The Fund will invest in projects mainly in the France and Benelux area but also in Spain and Poland. The Fund can commit up to 50% of its capital by participating in subsequent co-development on the cleaned sites.

The management company Brownfields Gestion has a strong track record in the sector, in particular using the “tiers-demandeur” procedure.

Impact Performance


Impact thesis

The purpose of the fund is to acquire contaminated urban and industrial sites from private and public owners, remediate the polluted soil and groundwater and sell the remediated land to third parties for development. The developments on the remediated sites may potentially comprise social and affordable housing and buildings with high energy-efficiency performance in which the fund may act as co-developer.
