Built to Decarbonize

Accelerating the growth of future-fit businesses to reshape the industrial economy.

We commercialize and scale companies that are critical for the transition to net-zero.

Our focus is on the high-polluting areas of the industrial economy, helping to provide the products and services we all rely on with less waste and lower emissions – at cost parity or better. We invest in technologies, back businesses that help these to grow and build decarbonization infrastructure on the ground.

Our strategies

1-2

Private Equity

We invest in technologies that are displacing existing, polluting industrial processes, as well as the businesses that provide products and services to decarbonization platforms.

Sector focus:

  • Industrial and manufacturing
  • Chemicals and materials
  • Food and agriculture
  • Energy efficiency and green fuels

Infrastructure

We build new infrastructure and repurpose high-quality existing assets that are required to underpin a lower-carbon economy. We invest in the same sectors as our private equity strategy, with a current focus on three specific themes.

Investment themes:

  • Low-carbon molecules production, storage and distribution
  • Waste to X – infrastructure that diverts waste from landfill
  • Decarbonization solutions for the Infrastructure value chain
