CGF Portfolio Above


Every Net Zero scenario is underpinned by remarkable growth of global solar photovoltaic capacity. Above provides asset owners and operators with the tools required to optimally manage their solar plants, enabling effective fault identification and rectification to increase the quantity of green power they generate.

Arda Biomaterials Co-founders


Arda Biomaterials is on a mission to transform waste into a valuable leather-alternative material that is entirely animal and plastic-free. Leveraging chemistry and materials science, Arda’s first transformation is turning the waste grain from the beer brewing industry into a leather alternative for use in the fashion industry, as well as for home goods, upholstery, and more. 

Carbon Re

Carbon Re is developing a leading edge artificial intelligence platform, Delta Zero, which uses deep reinforcement machine learning to address complex process optimisation challenges within the foundation industries. Delta Zero will enable process plants to radically reduce carbon emissions and operational costs.

Clean Food Group 

Clean Food Group is a UK-based food-tech business delivering sustainable oils and fats solutions to the world’s food and cosmetics manufacturers, with the mission to deliver scalable, healthier, competitively priced ingredients that have a positive impact on the economic, environmental, and social health of the planet.

FA Bio

FA Bio is revolutionising sustainable agriculture with the discovery and development of superior microbial bioproducts, including biocontrols, biostimulants and biofertilisers, that can replace chemical inputs, improve soil health and significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions.


Founded in 2021, Futraheat is pioneering the development of a high temperature heat pump for industry that will target applications in 100°C-200°C process heating. This hard-to-decarbonise temperature range is currently responsible for over 3% of total global emissions – more than the entire aviation industry.


Personal and homecare cleaning products such as detergents, shampoos and laundry powders are manufactured on an industrial scale and rely on vast quantities of petrochemical surfactants. Consumer conglomerates are demanding more environmentally friendly feedstocks and Holiferm is satisfying this with natural, low-cost biosurfactants produced by fermentation.

Hutan Bio RD-Sit e enclosed bioreactor


HutanBio exists to make the world we live in a better and more equitable place. They are on a mission to disrupt the biofuel industry; scaling up their HBx technology platform to make low carbon biofuels to meet the challenge of transitioning to net zero in the marine and heavy transport sectors.



HydRegen is pioneering the production of bio-based catalysts that enable cleaner, safer and more energy-efficient manufacturing processes for the global pharmaceutical and chemicals industries. Their innovative biotechnology aims to deliver huge CO₂ savings and operating costs by replacing toxic metal catalysts with environmentally and economically friendly bio-based alternatives.


Indra has a vision to support global Net Zero ambitions through intelligent vehicle charging technology. The company has developed the smartest EV charger available on the market, the Smart Pro, which automatically optimises for the cleanest, cheapest electricity. In addition, its bi-directional Vehicle-to-Grid charger enables power to be stored in vehicle batteries and discharged back to the grid when needed most.


By using the very latest geospatial technology, Kamma combines data collection and address-matching technology with insightful analysis to articulate the fastest routes to net zero. Kamma’s data powers climate change solutions ranging from ESG risk management and reporting to retrofit optimisation solutions. designs and manufactures smart, machine learning enabled power sockets that reduce the energy costs of commercial buildings by more than 20%. The sockets eliminate small power waste energy by identifying a plugged-in device that’s wasting energy and automatically turning it off. The socket also contains a light system that indicates whether the energy being supplied at the time is coming more from fossil fuels or renewable energy sources, helping to improve consumer habits.


Nuada is a vertically integrated pure-play carbon capture company that is poised to decarbonise heavy industries through its next generation point-source capture technology. The company builds energy-efficient CO2 filtration machines that enable industrial emitters in hard-to-abate sectors to achieve their Net Zero targets whilst minimising the impact on their bottom line.

Oriole Networks 

Oriole Networks will revolutionise the performance of AI systems and speed up data centres, whilst dramatically reducing energy consumption for a sustainable future.


Piclo has built an online platform which unlocks new revenue streams for flexible energy assets while simultaneously supporting the balance of supply and demand on power grids. This is accomplished by creating independent marketplaces for trading ‘flexibility’. These reduce grid congestion rates which in turn enables greater renewable energy penetration and reduces the need for costly network upgrades.


Sunswap has developed a zero-emission transport refrigeration unit which combines solar panels, battery storage and low environmental impact refrigerants with cloud-based remote monitoring. Compared to traditional diesel systems Sunswap’s solution can reduce emissions by up to 93% while delivering a total cost of ownership saving between 20-50%.


tepeo’s Zero Emission Boiler (ZEB) technology is revolutionising the way we heat our homes. ZEBs are powered by electricity and work like batteries to store heat efficiently until it is needed. This decoupling of energy demand and heat supply enables affordable decarbonisation of residential heating and integration of more renewable power.

Vector Photonics

Vector Photonics is a Glasgow-based laser developer commercialising PCSELs (Photonic Crystal Surface Emitting Lasers). This new class of laser offers high speed and power and can be manufactured at low cost. The world relies on lasers…datacentres use lasers to power their communications networks. Globally, these datacentres account for 2-3% of electricity usage and this demand is forecast to grow by up to 400% by 2030.

If you are a low carbon innovator with a UK based technology that you think we need to know about, we’d love to hear from you.
