In addition, it includes Extantia Ignite, a sustainability hub advancing knowledge and competence in climate innovation and ESG practices.

Sebastian Heitmann, Partner at Extantia said: “This is more than just another climate tech fund.

“To reach net zero, we need a major change across the entire economy and mobilisation of all market players. Over the past two years, we built a platform to catalyse this movement. We provide economically and ecologically viable investment alternatives to asset managers; education and knowledge to industry leaders and policymakers; and capital and domain expertise to entrepreneurs.”
