Financial Innovations to Drive Climate Outcomes at Speed and Scale

Innovative Climate Finance is Needed

to Keep The Planet < 1.5-2 C Warming.

The India Climate Innovation Fund invests in pre-growth climate and environment technologies that have the ability to deliver exponential climate impact and long-term compounded returns. Investments are structured to bridge the innovation-to-industry gap. We do this by aligning capital and resources for startups to expedite the achievement of techno-commercial viability and validate commercialization models to unlock growth.  We fund “real” businesses with strong economics and the potential to transform the environmental impact of their sector or create new markets.

Climate Capital Network.png

Climate Capital Network (CCN) is a group of +50 climate capital allocators across sectors, stages, and capital instruments (equity, debt, and grants). Through CCN we increase existing climate funding by reducing diligence friction, and sharing expertise; foster collaborative capital by facilitating relationships between funders across the spectrum, and mobilize new capital by creating a better understanding of the space. The network hosts regular learning sessions, facilitates member connections across sectors and capital types, and operates a platform for sharing news, deals, and sector reports. 

Outcomes Exchange (OX) is a Results-Based Climate Finance (RBCF) platform that extends the economic benefits of creating climate outcomes to small producers and a variety of climate outcomes not captured or valued in existing finance mechanisms. Leveraging the benefits of an over-the-counter (OTC) marketplace, the platform lowers transaction costs, provides flexibility, and increases transparency by registering contracts for climate outcomes based on mutual consent.  We are building in collaboration with WWF India, ReConnect, and Alsisar Impact and supported by ANDE (Aspen Network of Development Entrepreneurs).

ACT logo.jpeg

ACT For Environment Fund is a venture philanthropy PLUS model backed by leaders from the Indian VC and startup ecosystem. The fund leverages flexible capital, the “startup way” and the ACT network to catalyze and scale climate impact in nascent sectors. Green Artha is the founding Fund Manager and has worked with the anchors to develop the strategy, articulate the fund thesis, and build the portfolio.

As part of our work with ACT and in partnership with Boston Consulting Group, we have launched the Green Startup Pledge (GSP). GSP is the world's first climate pledge designed for startups, and demonstrates the leadership role played by the Indian startup ecosystem. First announced at UNFCC COP27, the Pledge will help Indian startups build businesses that are both more ecological and economical, while taking into account the dynamics of the markets they work within. 

Climate is a Horizontal, NOT a Vertical. 

We work across climate and environment, mitigation, and adaptation.

We invest in innovations that are transformative and foundational.

To create climate impact at speed and scale, the economics

must work for the business and the customer.
