Decarbonizing our global economy presents the most challenging and promising investment opportunity of our lifetime.
An emerging set of scalable, affordable technologies are enabling energy, transportation, food, and our broader economy to transition to breakthrough sustainable models. At Valo we are investing in climate technologies that can effectively:
Measuring carbon footprint and sequestration, forecasting weather events, analyzing soil health and biodiversity impacts, and generating actionable insights through carbon accounting.
Accelerating emissions reductions by deploying large-scale renewable energy, electrifying transportation and industry, retrofitting efficient buildings, scaling CCUS solutions, and fast-tracking more efficient ways to feed the planet.
Preparing for escalating climate threats across the built environment, with resilient planning, permitting, and design, implementing regenerative agricultural practices to safeguard food supply chains, and deploying novel fintech and insurance innovations to better price climate risk.
87 countries draw at least 5% of their electricity from wind and solar – the tipping point to widespread adoption of renewable technology.
Nature-based solutions including reforestation and sustainable land management comprise ~40% of retired carbon credits in voluntary carbon markets, up from just 5% in 2010.
Solar power and lithium-battery costs plummeted 85%+ over the last decade, with wind power costs declining ~55%.
90% of global GDP is committed to net zero and more than 4,000 companies are pursuing climate pledges.
10.5 million new electric vehicles (including PHEVs) came to market during 2022—up 55%+ over 2021.
