The Zero Carbon Fund today closed to new investment after raising a total of more than £1.5m over the last 6+ months. Zero Carbon Capital, who deliver the fund in partnership with Sapphire Capital Partners, aims to accelerate the development and commercialisation of hard science solutions to the most pressing issues of climate change.

“We’re so excited to start working with companies that are poised to have such a big positive impact on our Net Zero transition,” said Pippa.

“We believe that investing in early stage deep science innovation can make climate solutions better and cheaper, and this will accelerate the Net Zero transition”

Over the next year the fund aims to invest in ten ambitious EIS-eligible startups with breakthrough ideas that can scale to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least half a gigaton per year in some of the big unsolved problem areas in the climate space, such as energy storage, cooling, food & agriculture, industrial heat and carbon capture.

With over five years experience in clean-tech investing in both the USA and UK, and twenty years in tech companies such as Google and eBay bringing innovative new products to market, Pippa and Alex Gawley, the founders of Zero Carbon Capital, are aiming to build a portfolio of exceptional companies that will benefit not just from the infused capital but also from the expertise and connections they can bring.
