Climate protection as an asset class offers opportunities for investors and entrepreneurs


A growing number of inves­tors are inte­res­ted in green invest­ments, while young start-up commu­ni­ties are using the third wave of the inter­net to create inno­va­tive solu­ti­ons for a sustainable future. Inves­t­ing at the inter­face of the two mega­trends “new inter­net” and green trans­for­ma­tion offers oppor­tu­ni­ties for inves­tors and entre­pre­neurs. We have built Vana­gon Ventures’ invest­ment thesis around this field with enorm­ous potential.

In this article, we take a look at the use of tech­no­lo­gies such as toke­niza­tion and arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence in the volun­t­ary carbon market as well as the poten­tial of the circu­lar economy and the digi­tal product pass­port for a low-carbon economy and provide examp­les from our portfolio.

Accor­ding to esti­ma­tes by McKin­sey & Company, the annual global demand for CO2 certi­fi­ca­tes could rise to 1.5 to 2 giga­tons of carbon dioxide (GtCO2) by 2030 and to 7 to 13 GtCO2 by 2050. The market size in 2030 could be between USD 5 billion and USD 30 billion at the lower end and more than USD 50 billion at the upper end.
