Recent developments such as the SEBI Circular surrounding revamped ESG and Sustainability reporting are a welcome addition, encouraging large-scale enterprises to adopt tech solutions that aid in carbon reduction, ESG compliance, and Climate Education.
Carbon (Dioxide) is one of the building blocks of all organisms on Earth, such that it allows Earth to hold it’s energy. Carbon Sequestration is the process of capturing and storing atmospheric carbon dioxide. It is one method of reducing the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere with the goal of reducing global climate change.   There has been growth in startups working on carbon capture/tech sequestration that capture CO2/ GHGs and utilize them to create value-added products and/ or sell offsets on exchanges.
Given the large depth in climate finance required, emerging forms of climate finance will be important for us to consider. For example, Refi (Regenerative Finance) is a movement focusing on the power of blockchain and web3 to address climate change, support conservation and biodiversity, and create a more equitable and sustainable financial system.
Energy storage and management for mobility & transport use cases have observed strong investor traction historically, and we believe this trend will continue in the next 3-5 years. This includes Electric vehicles as a category.

Agriculture has vast potential with respect to climate change. Building agri-food supply chain efficiencies will be very important to reduce post-harvest food losses. Hence, solutions that use technology to reduce food losses from farm-to-folk or provide cold-chain infra would be relevant to consider. 

 

Additionally, precision agriculture will be crucial to increasing farm yields, but the sector is vast ranging from farm advisory to Agri inputs to IoTs and deep tech hardware solutions. Hence, we will opportunistically look at this theme to scout good startups.
