Buyers, sellers and investors in February 2024 included ESG (environmental, social and governance) consulting companies, renewable energy firms, software providers, technology businesses, private equity firms, climate tech startups and plenty more. Still, buyers and investors rarely disclosed deal valuations -- so it's difficult to pinpoint the overall health and investor interest in the sector.

For some context, here's a look at each of the 51 M&A deals that we spotted in February 2024:
