CGF supports the UK’s most ambitious low carbon innovators seeking investment capital to rapidly drive their businesses forward

Clean growth sectors

CGF invests in innovations that reduce greenhouse gas emissions or improve resource efficiency across power, transport, industry, buildings, waste and water.

Early stage

CGF focuses on companies with commercially viable solutions that are generating early revenues, and also considers pre-revenue businesses with a minimum viable product.

UK-based

CGF focuses on early stage, clean growth companies based in the UK with a global outlook and scalable solutions and business models.

CGF invests in technology businesses that are driving the transition to net zero through developing disruptive products and services.

The clean growth sector includes innovations that can improve the resource efficiency of industry and commerce, while reducing greenhouse gas emissions, pollution or other adverse environmental impacts and also deliver substantial financial returns.

Within these sectors, CGF will invest across the technology spectrum, including hardware, software, process systems, materials, deep tech and business model innovations, capable of driving real and rapid change on a global scale.

The Fund’s core focus will be into companies with outstanding management teams which have a pilot or alpha prototype that successfully demonstrates the technical feasibility of their product or service alongside compelling evidence of market traction and engagement.

While the typical first round investment tends to be in the region of £500k – £3million the fund actively participates in follow on rounds so the overall investment in a company can be much higher.
