John Treadgold wrote an article about our ambition to back big ideas for transformational change.
SDGx is focussing on large, established industries, as this is where the firm sees the greatest potential for impact, as the outcomes are so far reaching. This size also gives the companies huge scope for scale, and that’s good for returns.
“Our focus is on industries within production, manufacturing and mobility. These are the sectors that currently have the highest emissions, and if we’re going to reach that 0.5gt reduction in ten years, we need to find startups targeting those areas. It’s things like EV’s, and green infrastructure upgrades. There’s a lot of opportunity.” Zarmeen Pavri explains. “There’s no sacrifice on returns, it’s a VC asset class at the end of the day.”
