Emerald Technology Ventures 3 mins read

Strong demand from global industrial giants

ZURICH, SWITZERLAND / ACCESSWIRE / June 29, 2023 / Leading climate-tech pioneer Emerald Technology Ventures has announced that its industrial climate-tech fund has just surpassed €250 million. The flex-term fund's milestone is notable not only for its size, but also because many blue-chip industrial corporations have invested, seeking transformational change to reach their net-zero commitments. The fund supports their drive to be early adopters of the climate-tech solutions that cutting-edge startups can provide. Current investors-a group whose combined total revenues exceed $1 trillion-include diverse global industrial giants in energy, chemicals, materials, packaging, heavy industry, automotive, technology, real estate and utilities.

This milestone also highlights Emerald's overall position as a major player amongst climate-tech VCs, now managing and advising over €1 billion in assets for over 50 Limited Partners. Emerald's other funds specifically target energy transformation, sustainable packaging and global water impact. It also has three corporate-venture-capital (CVC) mandates with industrial tech, energy and packaging companies in Japan, South Africa and Switzerland, in which Emerald curates the entire deal flow of a client's CVC arm. Emerald also manages the Technology Fund on behalf of the Swiss government, which offers loan guarantees to Swiss companies that contribute to a sustainable reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.

As the industrial climate-tech fund continues to grow, it not only helps to reveal solutions for sustainable operations but also helps discover and develop new technology that will transform business models to be profitable in a sustainable and climate-friendly economy. The fund's portfolio includes leading technologies in climate tech such as clean energy management, bioplastics, PFAS-free coatings, algorithmic electricity trading, alternative proteins, digital infrastructure assessment, AI-enabled water leak detection and more.

Gina Domanig, Managing Partner and CEO of Emerald, said, "Climate tech is a must-have, not a nice-to-have. We are part of the transformation that is happening in sectors that are not only critical to the economy but critical to our sustainable prosperity. I am excited to be a player in that transformation and to see Emerald's role in catalyzing such large global players to make the difficult changes that are necessary for a healthy planet."

Australia’s Nature Positive future hangs in the balance

Legislation tabled today to create a new Environment Protection Authority (EPA) and Environment Information Australia (EIA) needs significant amendment to provide an adequate framework for a nature positive Australia, according to Humane Society International (HSI) Australia. While the EPA and EIA are important and necessary institutions, the animal protection and conservation organisation argues the proposed scope and governance of these bodies won’t deliver the urgent and fundamental improvements in decision making that our extinction crisis demands. Nicola Beynon, Head of Campaigns, HSI Australia said: “The current Bills replicate the key problems of the existing legislation. They fail to embed clear,…
