Change Brings Opportunity
The Climate Venture Capital Fund invests in companies that deliver high growth, high returns on investment – and high climate impact. We are focused on New Zealand and Australian companies, at least for now.
We will easily exceed our goal of 1 million tonnes per $50 million committed – indeed each of our first three investments might deliver more than that goal alone.
We have an external impact committee to validate impact, and are using measure OI5951 from the IRIS+ Metrics developed by the Global Impact Investing Network to measure and report impact.
We all need to do our bit, and the Climate Venture Capital Fund allows investors to align venture capital investing with impact goals and companies to prove their climate credentials.
We firmly believe that high impact on emissions is a strong sign that companies will outperform their peers. Meanwhile many of the companies we see are not created for impact, but impact is an output of a competitive advantage. So there is a negative tradeoff for us – the higher the emissions reductions, the higher the likely returns, especially in a world of ever-increasing carbon prices.
We are still accepting investment, so get in touch if you would like to know more. We are open only to wholesale and eligible investors.
