EcoVadis completes $500 million fundraising, becoming 27th French unicorn

Client(s) EcoVadis SAS

Jones Day advised EcoVadis, a leading global sustainability rating firm, in connection with its $500 million fundraising. EcoVadis becomes one of the sector's first "unicorns" (an unlisted firm valued at $1 billion or more). The financing, led by private equity firms Astorg and BeyondNetZero, General Atlantic's climate investing arm, as well as Singapore's GIC and Princeville Capital, is the largest equity fundraising to date for such a company.
