$1B+ investment
fund for a lower
carbon footprint

We invest in innovative startups to lower the carbon footprints of the energy and industrial sectors and their value chains and use our OGCI network to help them achieve commercial success.

Our Focus

Our investments are focused on three objectives:

Energy generation and industrial processes often generate carbon dioxide emissions.

At Climate Investments we invest in efficiency solutions that lower the carbon footprint of the energy, industrial and transport sectors. In other words, support innovation that can deliver the same goods and services but with a lower carbon intensity.

Recycling Carbon Dioxide (CCUS)

Every year, more than 37GT of carbon dioxide are released into the atmosphere and this carbon dioxide adds up to cause warming.

At Climate Investments, we invest in breakthrough technologies that will capture this carbon dioxide and recycle it into products or store it safely. This cycle is called Carbon Capture, Utilisation and Storage (CCUS) and creates a circular economy for the carbon dioxide. We also invest in projects that demonstrate the commerciality and scalability of the CCUS value chain.

“I am excited about what Climate Investments can do for us in OGCI as well as for the industry, in identifying and investing in low-carbon technologies. The OGCI member companies are looking forward to testing and deploying these methane and carbon dioxide mitigation technologies to accelerate the energy transition.”
