Zero Carbon Fund
The Zero Carbon Fund is a new EIS fund investing in early-stage companies on a mission to address climate change through technology innovation. We’re looking for ambitious teams with breakthrough ideas that could scale to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by half a gigaton per year.
We need to act
Man-made climate change is an urgent and existential threat to humanity. We need to take significant actions to address it, and we need to start taking them now as the effects of climate change are already being felt around the world: “wildfires ravage fragile habitats, city taps run dry, droughts scorch the land, and floods destroy people’s homes and livelihoods.“
Global Commission on Adaptation (2019)
We need investment
“Clean energy innovation is the solution to climate change…put simply, we can’t beat climate change with only the technology we have today... Innovation also drives the cost reduction necessary to transform global energy markets. We need to rapidly accelerate the pace of innovation to meet the challenge of limiting global temperature rise to two degrees Celsius. Investment is critical.”
