Impact

We are all about Climate First. We invest in deep decarbonization
technologies that lead us to a world beyond fossil fuels and back companies that make a meaningful contribution to the biggest challenges of today’s time.

These are the giga-problems we face:

73

of emissions originate from the use of energy (electricity & heating). Energy is needed in commercial & residential buildings, agriculture, industrial processes, and every other aspect of modern life.

8

of CO2e is released into the atmosphere each year by road transport, aviation, shipping and other transportation, amounting to 16,2% of global emissions.

15

of CO2e annually, or 29,4% of the total share of global CO2e emissions, comes from industrial processes (including cement, chemicals, iron and steel production).

We are actively searching for companies that have the potential of becoming a “Gigacorn”, that is, companies capable of saving at least 1Gt of CO2e a year that are commercially viable with unicorn potential. We back exceptional entrepreneurs who achieve this either through direct technology impact of at least 100 Mt of CO2e a year or indirectly as a significant enabling force across sectors.

How to build a Gigacorn

A Gigacorn is a company that has achieved lowering or sequestering CO2e emissions by 1 gigaton a year while being commercially viable

1. Team

Team is coachable and can grow the business

2. Green-line

Potential to significantly reduce CO2 emissions

3. Bottom-line

Technology has practical sizeable market demand and is competitive as an alternative to fossil fuels

4. Scale

Ability to transform company into a fast scaling and commercial business. No fundamental R&D or upfront CAPEX intensive business

5. Value Drivers

Ability to catalyse co- and follow on funding for our entrepreneurs from leading public-private investors, deep domain expertise & networks beyond capital

EPIC Methodology

EPIC stands for Extantia Projected Impact Calculation. The EPIC methodology is our process of assessing the greenhouse gas reductions a certain technology can achieve over time, plus its ESG calculation and Extantia’s impact carry.

Giga Suspects

The highest potential for CO2e reductions can be found in areas where the highest percentage of emissions are being generated, which is why we focus on the most polluting industries.
