Investment Strategy Driving Long-Term Value By Accelerating Climate Solutions



Case Study

“We’re see­ing solu­tions. There are things we can do today to opti­mize pro­duc­tion in plants and reduce car­bon while actu­al­ly dri­ving a finan­cial ben­e­fit for the oper­a­tor of the facil­i­ty. It’s the kind of cap­i­tal­ism that is work­ing in con­cert with reg­u­la­tors, in con­cert with cor­po­rates to real­ly dri­ve progress, that is so excit­ing to us.”

The Problem

The rapid acceleration and scaling of critical technologies and solutions is fundamental to reshaping industry and accelerating decarbonization across systems including power, transportation, manufacturing, buildings, and agriculture. It also represents an opportunity and need for more investors to enter the climate space.

The Approach

Galvanize Climate Solutions (“Galvanize”) is a relatively new climate-focused global investment firm, founded by experienced investors Katie Hall and Tom Steyer, with a mission to accelerate climate solutions while creating long-term value for its investors. Galvanize’s investment approach is amplified by a multidisciplinary platform, drawing from a team with experience spanning climate impact, science, technology, policy, market development, talent, and communications. Galvanize provides portfolio services tailor-made for the climate company builder, including regulation and policy support, talent recruitment, go-to-market strategic partnership, and media engagement. By pairing investment teams with technical experts, Galvanize aims to identify and scale transformative climate companies that will lead the energy transition.

The Impact

Innovation + Expansion, Galvanize’s first venture and growth strategy, has invested in nine companies to date across cement and concrete production, agricultural supply chain technology, green hydrogen, and climate impact reporting and analysis software. Innovation + Expansion aims to drive a significant reduction in emissions over the next 10 years while contributing to a more robust ecosystem of climate-aligned investors.
