We founded Climate & Capital to participate in a vibrant conversation taking place among entrepreneurs, climate scientists, investors, NGOs, policymakers and corporate leaders. What’s driving that discussion is a shared realization that building a sustainable future is both a moral imperative and an economic opportunity with potentially exponential investment returns.

In preparation for our January 2020 launch, we are developing a Who’s Who in Climate & Capital. Our community is for the doers of climate change who are looking to connect with other like-minded people on business, investing, policy, academia and science.

If you are as passionate about these issues as we are, we invite you to join us.

WE HOLD
THESE
TRUTHS…

  1. WE SUBSCRIBE TO NO ORTHODOXIES OTHER THAN A CONCERN THAT CLIMATE CHANGE THREATENS LIFE AS WE KNOW IT, AND THAT INVESTMENT OF VAST AMOUNTS OF CAPITAL HAS A MORAL OBLIGATION TO CREATE ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS MODELS.
  2. WE ARE CREATING A FORUM FOR PRODUCTIVE, REALITY-BASED DIALOGUE
  3. WE PRESUME THE GOODWILL OF ALL PARTICIPATING STAKEHOLDERS.
  4. WE ARE NOT ACTIVISTS – UNLESS YOU BELIEVE THE PURSUIT OF TRUTH IS ACTIVISM.
  5. WE ARE NOT APOLOGISTS – UNLESS YOU BELIEVE THAT FREE-MARKET CAPITALISM HAS NO ROLE TO PLAY IN THE RESCUE OF OUR PLANET.
  6. WE BELIEVE IN ACCOUNTABILITY. IF A COMPANY OR INDUSTRY CLAIMS TO BE TRULY CONCERNED ABOUT SUSTAINABILITY, WE EXPECT THEIR ACTIONS TO EQUAL THEIR RHETORIC.

" In my opinion, there is no solution to this other than an economic market based one… So imagine now if we look at this energy problem, which is essentially what the global warming problem is, how do you re-power the planet? Well, you come up with a way of developing this so that there are investable projects; that there are things that can be done tomorrow. "
