Fund critical net zero tech and shape the standards of climate investing
We engage with initiatives like Project Frame to shape industry standards and foster collaboration among climate fund investors to advance impact due diligence approaches. Plus, we only select funds that align with us on what makes a great climate tech investment. These companies:
The world’s most specialized climate fund selector
We map and track climate private equity funds globally based on our proprietary climate impact assessment and financial diligence. Only 5% of climate funds we've scanned have made it onto our platform.
How we assess impact
Climate Impact Scorecard
We’ve defined all the aspects of quality (fund) impact investing. Our proprietary scorecard benchmarks a fund against the global best practices in each aspect. Our scorecard consists of 6 themes, 12 topics and 40 questions, all geared toward assessing the quality with which climate impact has been integrated into a fund.
Impact track record analysis
For each fund, we assess how big their potential contribution to net zero is. To do so, we analyze its past investments against the best decarbonization pathways, including those of the IEA, Drawdown, IRENA and the EU taxonomy. Per investment, we assess how relevant it is to building our net zero future.
ESG and SFDR
Here, we ensure funds invest in companies that follow good environmental, social and governance practices because we don’t want to create other problems on our way to net zero. We expect most of the funds we select to be classified as Article 8 or Article 9 under the SFDR.
General due diligence
Exceptional funds have strong processes in place, high-quality teams, a clear competitive advantage, proven value-adds for companies and the consistent ability to deliver strong returns. The more our investments grow, the larger the impact (and returns) will be.
Join our Climate Investing Club
By joining the Climate Investing Club you can become eligible to invest in selected opportunities with minimums under €100k.
For every investment done by a fund (75 so far), we evaluate its potential contribution to achieving a net zero future. This is based on the most robust climate science research by the IEA, Project Drawdown, McKinsey and more. Our target is that >70% of the investments are critical net zero technologies, allowing our investors to play a meaningful role in scaling the building blocks of a fossil-free economy.
* 97% of investments have some decarbonization potential. If an underlying fund trends toward a lower share of critical tech than expected, we engage with the fund’s management team.
