Impact Performance


Impact thesis

ETF is dedicated to achieving a large environmental impact at a global level.
We focus on resource and energy efficient technologies as opposed to more traditional, and more capital intensive, renewable energy generation such as wind or solar. Typically, these technologies also save money rather than requiring large-scale spending. In our book, it is these demand-side technologies, as opposed to those on the supply-side, where some of the biggest game-changing opportunities lie.
Our initial fund has placed us at the forefront of the rapidly expanding Cleantech venture and private equity sector. In 2011, five out of our twelve portfolio companies won the 'Global Cleantech 100' award, the best ratio of any European cleantech investor. (The Cleantech 100 is a ranking of the 100 most promising and innovative environmental companies. It is based on feedback from over 70 independent experts.)
Our demand-side approach is capable of providing significant environmental impact. As an illustration of the potential of our portfolio, if every technology was applied globally there would be a reduction in the order of 450,000,000 tonnes of CO2 emitted per year. This is the equivalent of 10% of the EU's annual carbon footprint. To obtain a comparable impact using wind farms would require a capital investment in the order of £200 billion.
