Climate Investment looks for opportunities that can deliver strong, quantified GHG impact and an attractive risk-adjusted return. Our funds have their own targets for impact and returns.
Why investwith us?
There are many capital allocators.
Why choose us? Here are a few reasons.
A differentiated platform
When you invest with us, you join a differentiated platform that believes the climate challenge can be addressed through innovation and accelerated market adoption of capital efficient decarbonization solutions.
A business model to deliver scaled impact
Climate Investment has built a business model to deliver scaled impact. We proactively support our portfolio companies through their growth stages to drive their success, provide access and insights to our investors and innovators that can help achieve their low carbon commitments, and collaborate widely so we can all realize our decarbonization goals.
Global network to accelerate market adoption
We work with our large, global network to accelerate the market adoption of our portfolio companies’ innovations, which enhances their commercial success and ensures our decarbonization objectives are met.
We apply rigour through our investment process
Rigour is applied through our investment process which is guided by the quantified impact potential of an opportunity. We share our impact measurement methodology with our portfolio companies and help them operationalize their reporting.
Our portfolio’s collective GHG impact is published annually.
A trusted resource
Our investors partner with us as a trusted resource to access and integrate our innovators’ solutions within their own firms or portfolios, expand their impact knowledge, and exchange ideas with informed peers.
Global partnership network
Investors can access and participate in our global partnership network of policymakers, global corporations, investors, academics and non-government organizations that are similarly focused on identifying decarbonization solutions.
We work collaboratively
Together, we work collaboratively to develop and accelerate capital-efficient pathways towards a low-carbon economy. Because there is no time to lose.
Access and insights
We believe our Investment team is differentiated in two key aspects: access and insights.
- As a specialized decarbonization investor, we have a proven ability to originate new investment opportunities. Our extensive networks within our sectors of focus provide valuable introductions and investment referrals, including from investees, co-investors, and member companies. We believe that our demonstrated ability to deliver both capital and engaged post-investment growth support creates demand from companies seeking investment.
- We have considerable experience and capabilities in effectively evaluating and executing deal flow introduced by investors and other intermediaries, as well as managing co-investment opportunities. Working through our investors’ Investment Champions, we can explore and understand customer opportunity gaps to ensure we are pursuing market-based solutions.
Our Investment team benefits from broad operational, technical and entrepreneurial experience along with deep principal investing experience. These skills are further supported through collaboration with our Technology and Commercialization colleagues and underpin our confidence and credibility to act as a lead investor in investments.
We provide patient capital and look to participate in the capital expansion of our investees throughout their growth cycles. Rigorous capital forecasting forms part of our engaged model which is focused on maximizing impact and commercial success.
A systems-thinking approach is required, in our view, to deliver capital-efficient, low-cost decarbonization solutions. We invest across a wide range of sectors, actively seeking out innovations that can expand into adjacent markets.
Our access, insights, patience, and value-chain perspective are delivering results. Portfolio companies in our Catalyst Fund I are growing and delivering impact, with the overall portfolio delivering more than 57 MT of CO2e1 emissions reductions between 2019-2022.
*Carbon dioxide equivalent or CO₂ equivalent is a metric measure used to compare the emissions from various greenhouse gases on the basis of their global-warming potential (GWP), by converting amounts of other gases to the equivalent amount of carbon dioxide with the same global warming potential. MT means million tonnes. 2019-2022 cumulative emissions are calendar year and prepared internally in consultation with our portfolio companies.
Our innovators and investors have exclusive access to our Knowledge Platform where we are building an extensive practical resources hub covering global regulatory and incentives policies and frameworks; third-party, as well as CIimate Investment and OGCI research papers covering markets, sectors, technology innovation, business models etc.
There will also be an exchange area where our innovators can share and interact with one another’s published media; business development best practice guidance; and access expert network listings of key professional services firms.
The platform will also be a hub for our portfolio companies’ current vacancies along with an awards, events and conference tracker that those innovators may enter, exhibit or present at.
