Zero Carbon Fund

The Zero Carbon Fund is an EIS fund investing in early-stage companies on a mission to address climate change through deep-science, hard-tech innovation. We  invest in ambitious teams with breakthrough ideas that can scale to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by half a gigaton per year.

Are you working on a  deep scientific innovation that can have a meaningful impact on climate change?


We must 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 must invest

“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.”

Former US Secretary of Energy, Ernest Moniz.

Our Vision


An earth where a good standard of living is enabled for everyone, safely and affordably, with zero carbon emissions; reliable electricity, healthy food, comfortable buildings, responsible industry and effective transportation.

Our Mission


Accelerate the adoption and commercialisation of the deep scientific innovations needed to solve climate change.
