Innovative thinking for a green future

Sustainability is more than just a buzzword at APCOA - it is a cornerstone of our corporate philosophy. Parking is a complex topic that is constantly evolving and is no longer conceivable without environmentally conscious strategies. Our sustainability concepts extend across various areas: We promote sustainable mobility solutions at our locations through multimodal transportation services. In this way, we are linking parking, mobility and urban life ever more closely together. Electromobility also plays an important role in promoting environmentally friendly means of transportation and reducing CO2 emissions - for a better quality of life and air. That is why we are continuously working on expanding charging stations in our parking garages. In addition, we are integrating energy-efficient behavior into our parking lots by using modern technologies, making optimal use of existing resources and using solar panels as a sustainable energy source. Digital technologies have become an integral part of parking management, as they enable efficient use of parking space and significantly reduce traffic volumes. Other strategies such as the introduction of APNR systems and cashless payment options, micromobility and smart city solutions are aimed at making parking management more sustainable. 

By working closely with trusted partners on forward-looking solutions, we are making an important contribution to protecting our environment. Our “APCOA Sustainability in Action” initiative represents our ESG measures, which stand for responsible solutions in parking space management. 


The development of APCOA: a parking management success story

APCOA in 1947

Airport Parking Corporation of America Inc. is founded as a subsidiary of ITT Corporation. This marks the beginning of APCOA's expansion strategy, which aims to establish itself as a global player in parking management.

APCOA from 1970 to 1979

In the 1970s, APCOA Autoparking GmbH was founded in Germany and expanded into Austria with APCOA Parking Austria in Vienna. These years are characterized by continuous European expansion and the consolidation of business activities.

APCOA from 1980 to 1989

The 1980s were characterized by geographical diversification and the consolidation of the European market position through APCOA's market entry in the UK and Italy. Further expansions during this decade consolidated APCOA's global presence.

APCOA from 1990 to 1999

The change of name to APCOA Parking AG and the IPO are milestones of the 1990s. The acquisition of the EuroPark Group in Norway, Sweden and Denmark and the management buy-out by CWB Capital Partners Limited consolidate APCOA's position as the leading parking facility manager in Europe.

APCOA from 2000 to 2009

In the new millennium, APCOA acquires companies in the UK and Germany, thereby strengthening its presence in these markets. The entry of Investcorp as a major shareholder enables expansion into other European countries such as Ireland, Spain, Switzerland and Poland.

APCOA from 2010 to 2019

The years 2010 to 2019 are characterized by a successful financial restructuring under the leadership of Investcorp. APCOA expands its portfolio in Europe through strategic acquisitions and consolidates its position as a leading provider in parking management.

APCOA from 2020 to 2024

Following the successful restructuring with Centerbridge Partners in 2014, APCOA has reached another milestone: since October 2023, the company has been fully managed by SVP (Strategic Value Partners), a US investment company.
