Our Sustainable Impact Capital Programme, led by Barclays’ Principal Investment team, will invest £175m over the next five years in the equity of fast-growing, innovative and environmentally-focused early-stage companies, whose values are aligned with those of Barclays and which target the goals and timelines of the Paris Agreement.

From the acceleration of innovative carbon-efficient technologies and supply-chains to supporting the development of viable markets for carbon capture and sequestration, the Programme is seeking out and supporting clear scalable propositions that deliver both environmental benefits and economic returns.
