Clean Growth Fund had the honour of introducing His Majesty The King (Charles III) to its portfolio of investee companies during the Climate Innovation Forum at the Guildhall, London. CGF has fourteen portfolio companies covering a wide range of sectors but each is commercialising disruptive technology with the potential to significantly reduce Green house gas emissions.
Beverley Gower-Jones, Managing Partner at Clean Growth Fund, was invited to walk King Charles III through the exhibition hall and to give insight into the work that Clean Growth Fund has been doing to invest in the UK’s most promising clean tech innovators. Beverley introduced King Charles, who has been advocating for action against climate change for over 50 years, to the group of pioneering startups. King Charles spent time hearing about the variety of technologies featured within the portfolio and chatting with its founders.
During this prestigious event, King Charles also launched the National Climate Clock alongside London Mayor Sadiq Khan, a digital clock shown in 150 locations across the UK to warn that there are just six years left for the world to limit global warning.
