Over the last century, the average surface temperature of the Earth has increased by approximately 1°C, the effects of which can already be felt- glaciers are melting, sea-levels are rising and extreme weather events are occurring more frequently. While some areas are flooding more often, others are experiencing droughts. In short, global warming and climate change are not only damaging our planet but threatening all that inhabits it.
That’s why we focus on investing in businesses that not only combat climate change but also help protect the precarious, interdependent social and environmental systems that are most at risk from planetary warming.
From as early as seed stage, we support passionate entrepreneurs who have the vision and ambition to create long-lasting positive climate impact while generating financial returns.
We look for companies that have the potential to disrupt the most carbon intensive sectors: energy, agriculture, transport, resource management and land use- where the greatest opportunities for positive and sustainable impact lie.
If we don’t support climate innovation now, we may never find the solutions that could help keep our food and water supplies intact, our ever-growing energy needs met and our ecosystems safeguarded for generations to come.
