The Global Carbon Fund
Our fund invests in companies that use blockchain, or distributed ledger technology (DLT), to verify carbon offsets, sequestered carbon, or energy generated by renewable resources.
We invest in companies that are developing blockchain technology to enable a more efficient and transparent global market for carbon credits.
Companies developing innovative products or solutions to reduce or mitigate carbon emissions
Companies developing technologies that drive blockchain registry of credits or tokens
Companies issuing tokens based on registry of carbon credits
Companies developing exchange facilities for carbon credits
We focus on companies that are working to solve a massive environmental challenge, the urgency of which has been detailed in the latest Special Report from the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change.
We know that private capital, by targeting innovative technologies and using a distributed ledger accounting system for carbon offsets, can be an effective partner to the public sector. It can also make profitable returns, as our portfolio companies are all market driven in developing their products and services.
