About the platform
This Nature-based Solutions Investment platform was developed by Capital for Climate in collaboration with the High-Level Champions and Race to Zero teams. The platform is designed to enable allocators to see the landscape of climate opportunity in one place - to inform strategy, navigate, source and execute investments aligned with science-based net zero pathways. (See the press release here.)
This is a limited first release that in 2022 will grow to include all climate-related sectors and significantly greater functionality. It is a first step in fulfilling Capital for Climate’s mission of accelerating capital deployment to the climate solutions required to achieve a 1.5 degree outcome and that provide investors both impact and financial returns.
About our funders
Primary funding for this project has come from the Quadrature Climate Foundation. Funding was also provided by ClimateWorks and in part by the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation through the Finance Hub, which was created to advance sustainable finance. (The Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation fosters path-breaking scientific discovery, environmental conservation, patient care improvements and preservation of the special character of the Bay Area.

We also wish to acknowledge the Wells Fargo Foundation, which provided generous support for Capital for Climate’s early development.
