Climate Change

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:

  • Monitor

    Measuring carbon footprint and sequestration, forecasting weather events, analyzing soil health and biodiversity impacts, and generating actionable insights through carbon accounting.

  • Mitigate

    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.

  • Adapt

    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.
