Case Studies

We are committed to financial transparency and future proofing the energy sources, natural resources and infrastructure that surround our communities to encourage long-term, sustainable growth.

To meet our goals, we work with companies and organisations that also value the opportunity for open and impactful investment to counter the systemic risks, like climate stress, facing future generations.

For example, Greensphere has been investing on behalf of the Green Investment Bank since 2012 to support the UK’s development of a low-carbon economy.

Our Legacy

Greensphere’s portfolio management style is hands-on, long-term and measured against three criteria – profit, people and planet - to deliver strong financial returns, as well as positive environmental and social impact.
