Inogen Alliance delivers efficient and consistent environmental (EHS & ESG) due diligence services that facilitate informed business decisions around mergers, acquisitions and divestitures. We help you to avoid uncertainty and surprises by identifying, assessing and prioritizing your environmental, health and safety (EHS) risks, allowing you to monitor and control potential negative impacts to your business as well as capitalize on potential opportunities through diligence process.
Although financial returns remain the key driver for investors, ESG (environmental, social and governance) has now become a key part of investment decisions for those acquiring businesses including supply chain and social human rights topics. We are able to advise investors on ESG strategies with wider benefits that can be realized over the lifetime of the investment with a view to providing more significant increases in asset value. To demonstrate this, we can also provide return on investment (ROI) evaluations and monetize ESG risks and investments.
Where significant uncertainties exist, we offer financial and risk modeling to help build a comfort level that risks can be managed and incorporated into the deal. Our post-transaction diligence process allow you to strategize onboarding, integration and business continuity considerations with asset and operational business integration.

M&A for Paper Industry Plants across EMEA
To provide the buyer with an accurate picture of the environmental status for each site to be purchased, denkstatt Hungary in cooperation with local Inogen Alliance partners carried out a Phase I environmental site assessment for each facility in Turkey, Algeria, and Italy.
In Turkey 2U1K and denkstatt Hungary delivered five Phase I Environmental site assessments and due diligence for four papermill facilities and a warehouse. Following the successful acquisition in Turkey, an environmental site assessment and due diligence was performed for four operating paper mill facilities and one vacant / greenfield property in Algeria. The acquisition efforts were stopped before the stage of Phase II Environmental Site Assessment
In 2022, denkstatt in partnership with HPC Italy proceeded with a pre-purchase Phase I Environmental Due Diligence, an Asbestos Containing Material Survey, and a Groundwater Survey for one of the largest Italian paper mills in San Giovanni di Duino, North Italy. The partnership between Inogen Alliance partners led the client to the next outstanding acquisition of a tremendous historical papermill. The activities also included health & safety assessment, soil and groundwater investigation, asbestos and mineral man-made fiber survey, structural assessment and technical and legal review of the existing claims associated with the exposure of the employees to asbestos.
The client had a single point of contact who was included in the acquisition team and coordinated all the Inogen Alliance Associates, educating them on the client’s needs and expectations. They were provided with technical support in each country, with local teams that were able to support the client in-depth for several tasks such as environmental, health and safety and structural assessments.
Our team received great recognition from the client. The adherence to agreed deadlines and quick turnaround of documents contributed significantly to client satisfaction. Due to the continuous knowledge sharing among the Inogen Alliance partners, the projects were conducted applying the best recognized standards and the client received consistent reporting and conclusions in all country locations. Local Inogen Alliance Associates were also involved for post closure activities.
