With COP26 just around the corner, the question on everyone's lips is: will World Leaders really work together productively to agree on immediate actions for solving climate change? Is COP26 for show or for real?
Here at Green Angel Syndicate, we are walking the walk, not just talking the talk. We're delighted to announce the opening of Round 3 of our EIS & SEIS Climate Change Fund. The Climate Change Fund enables High Net Worth Individuals or Sophisticated Investors who are passionate about reducing and reversing carbon emissions (but who are not necessarily angel investors) to invest in pioneering grassroots innovations. The more successful the Fund is, the greater the impact will be; each round accelerates the growth of early stage companies fighting climate change.
COP or no COP, here at Green Angel Syndicate, we continue to work our socks off to find and invest in those companies that will be successful in fighting climate change. We support innovators and entrepreneurs in raising the finance that will allow them to grow and to make a significant impact in reducing or reversing the greenhouse gas emissions that result in accelerated climate change.
Green Angel Syndicate (GAS) closed Round 2 of its EIS Climate Change Fund on 15 July, well ahead of its target – boosting the amounts that the Climate Change Fund will be able to invest alongside GAS. So far, the Climate Change Fund has invested in six startup companies, ranging from energy efficiency, protecting the environment and sustainable construction to seaweed refining and behavioural change in shopping habits.
Green Angel Syndicate is one of the largest angel syndicates in the UK and specialises exclusively in the fight against climate change. Nick Lyth, founder and CEO of GAS comments: "The opening of the third round of the Climate Change Fund is timed to coincide with the Climate Change conference, COP26, bringing together the Heads of State from all over the world to Glasgow to discuss how to beat Climate Change. Our Fund is working at the cutting edge of the technologies needed to make the World Leaders successful. They themselves desperately need technology breakthroughs of the kind we fund, just to avoid the carbon they will be emitting flying to and from Glasgow."
CCF Fund CIO Antoine Pradayrol says: "We are well on track to deploy the capital of the Climate Change Fund's first and second rounds. Tackling climate change requires a complete transformation of all sectors of the economy, and we can only hope that COP26 will deliver bold commitments by all countries to do so quickly. For our part, the more the Climate Change Fund raises, the more Green Angel Syndicate can help accelerate the development of innovative companies leading the bottom-up changes that are required - from energy to mobility and from industry to agriculture."
The GAS Climate Change Fund supports the deals invested in by GAS, drawing on the specialist expertise of the Syndicate and using the same high standards of due diligence. The Fund, launched by Green Angel Syndicate in association with SFC Capital Partners, is overseen by specialists with depth and breadth of knowledge on climate change, innovation and investment that is unmatched in the UK angel investment market.
