We’re powering planet-friendly progress
Our Climate experts sit across our sectors, bringing their in-depth industry knowledge and specialist networks to support our growing climate portfolio. They share the Octopus passion for protecting people and planet, working to bring sustainable thinking into all that we do and supporting our climate-first founders at every step. We also work closely with our colleagues in Octopus Energy, one of the fastest-growing energy companies in the world. We have an office in the US and extensive resources to help founders who are based or expanding there.
Who we’re backing
We know that we need to move towards a low carbon economy, and fast. We believe the companies accelerating this will create enormous value over the next 20 years. We look for companies that are creating a circular economy, decarbonising global energy systems and infrastructure, and reducing energy consumption. We also want to meet founders intent on greening finance, protecting and developing ecosystems, and erasing historical footprint through carbon removal technologies.
