How we do it

To strengthen our investments and the larger climate ecosystem, we deploy human capital and deep systems analysis to strengthen and align networks, create virtuous cycles and attract more brilliant people to work on the world’s biggest problem.

Network

We connect people, businesses and networks to facilitate greater levels of collaboration, reduce duplication of efforts and ensure resource efficiency. To advance climate innovation at the rate that is needed, it is imperative to marshal fragmented markets and participants

Virtuous Cycles

Climate innovation is like a math formula — when resources are missing from one side, the whole equation can become unsolvable. By understanding common dependencies, we help innovators solve both sides of the equation, creating virtuous cycles that propel success.

People

Human capital is critical to driving climate action. Every time we double the number of people working for a cleaner environment, we triple the outcome. We support building a robust innovation ecosystem that is inclusive, representing diverse backgrounds and skillsets.
