Green Angel Syndicate EIS Climate Change Fund opens Round 5

Green Angel Syndicate announces that Round 5 of its EIS Climate Change Fund is now open, following up the strong demand for the first four rounds.

The Climate Change Fund invests exclusively in early-stage companies fighting climate change. Uniquely, deal selection and diligence for the Climate Change Fund is underpinned by the widest network of specialist climate change investors in the UK, the members of Green Angel Syndicate.

Green Angel Syndicate Chief Investment Officer, Antoine Pradayrol, says: “Tackling climate change requires a complete transformation of all sectors of the economy. This is a massive collective challenge but also an enormous opportunity to do things differently. A growing number of early stage companies are rising to the challenge and developing innovative solutions – and it is our job to identify and support these fast-growing innovators”.

The Fund has already made inroads into the carbon challenge, with 18 companies funded since its launch two years ago, and many of them now significantly contributing to cutting greenhouse gas emissions.

In previous rounds of the Climate Change Fund, investments have been made in companies such as Low Carbon Materials (storing carbon in building materials, and a finalist in The Earthshot Prize), Zedify (zero-carbon deliveries to city centres) and AirEx (reducing home energy bills and carbon emissions through improved underfloor airflow).

“We can bring a good news story to the start of 2023, amid the gloom of economic turmoil,” says CEO, Cam Ross. “We bring a positive commitment to improving our world at the same time as aiming to deliver a strong financial return to all who share our concern regarding climate change.”
